Support » Fixing WordPress » My Site Crashed After Installing 3.0

  • My site,, has crashed after I installed WordPress 3.0. I did the automatic install and now I recieve this message, and only this message:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function add_rewrite_tag() on a non-object in /home/content/d/o/u/douglasbuffone/html/wp-includes/taxonomy.php on line 289

    I don’t know what to do and I am very worried that all of my content has been lost…

    Please help me. Thanks in advance!

  • Any ideas? Please?

    You likely have an errant plugin or theme that is calling the function add_rewrite_tag() at the wrong point.

    Here are some suggestions on how to disable plugins when you can’t access the admin.

    Once you’ve done that, you can re-activate the plugins one-by-one until you discover the culprit throwing this error.

    If I don’t have all the folders on my computer, can I still access WP Contents? Can you access it through Terminal?

    The access depends on what your host allows.

    Note that those instructions just have you rename the directory, not delete it, so it’s ok if you don’t have a copy on your personal computer.
