Support » Installing WordPress » Site crashed with new wp update

  • ldldb


    Hello all, I tried to do an update yesterday and got this error:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function add_rewrite_tag() on a non-object in /home/larkieatlarge/ on line 51

    I have asked Dreamhost to revert and they were able to reload the database but cannot resolve this error. Could someone here please help me? I do not know what version was running prior to the update (possibly a rather old one). Thanks so much!

    Using Ftp replace all files and folders except wp-content folder and wp-config.php file

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    – running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php



    thank you both for your suggestions!

    ldldb – It looks like you got it fixed. If you have any more issues, please feel free to raise a ticket with us again. I’m following up on DreamHost’s end to ensure next time we can help you out!

    i also experienced yesterday, is this because I install wordpress with fantastico?

    Tania_Osbourne if you used fantastico, you’re not on DreamHost 🙂 We don’t have it 😀

    I would re-install manually, though.
