3.4.2 Plugins ERROR Disabling themselves automatically (31 posts)

    I have been working on my site for a few weeks now. Last week I started to run into the problem with my site showing these errors.

    I am using GODADDY as my hosting.
    "PAGELINES THEME"

    (This is not happening during the install) Rather it is occuring when I go to my plugins page after I have activated them, after about 15 minutes.

    Also when I get to my plugins page on the dashboard they all have disappeared. Then when I refresh the page a few times they show back up???

    Seems to be a lot of people with the same issue. Is there a fix? I am very savvy would love to see someone give me some help here and be able to say it worked.

    I have tried deleting everything from my FTP and using a clean install. It seems that I am recieving this error no matter what plugins I activate they all end up giving me the same error. It was not happening to me before and all of the sudden it is.

    Also my dashboard seems to be a bit LAGGY sometimes. Could it be that I am using the latest version. I would think it would have less issues not more.

    I really am getting annoyed to log in to my dashboard after making changes and then I get these errors. Someone please help.

    The plugin akismet/akismet.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header.
    
    The plugin formidable/formidable.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header.
    
    The plugin jetpack/jetpack.php has been deactivated due to an error: The plugin does not have a valid header.

    Do you have access to the server logs?

    I am very tentatively thinking it is an execution timeout, or file read error related to an overworked server. Unless you have been hacked and something is screwing with the site, I can't think of any good reasons (including the ones I offered) that plugins would 'pop' in and and out like that.

    What do you want the server logs for ? Also....If can get hacked after 2 weeks after installing wordpress to my server....whmy would I even keep using it. Seems to me the more I learn the more it seems that it is very easy to exploit wordpress. Considering I am a newb right what would being hacked have to do with this? Why would someone hack my site if im not even making any money? What steps can you really take to protect yourself. Seems to me like a lot of these questions go unanswered.

    Makes no sense to me how it would be over worked serve if I only have 2 sites on my hosting account and it is unlimited bandwith on godaddy deluxe.

    Try re-reading s_ha_dum's response. I think that question was already answered.

    Seems to me like a lot of these questions go unanswered.

    None of which have anything to do with your current topic.

    post what url ... ?

    The one to your site, so we can look at it. You can get a lot of information that way, if you know if what to look for.

    Also, "unlimited bandwith" does not mean "unlimited server resources". Besides bandwidth, you have to consider available RAM, CPU allotment possibly, how many other sites besides yours are on the server, and what those sites do. The database server may have all the same issues unto itself.

    GoDaddy Deluxe looks like an talked-sold shared hosting to me, which could be the issue.

    Wow that Is a very interesting link. I wish I would have read that before I went with godaddy.

    My ultimate goal here is to host multiple wordpress sites. Right now when I go to my homepage it takes so long to load. I know its not my fiber optic internet connection and I have optimized all of the photos on my website. I also have no plugins activated.

    It would be nice if someone could actually provide me with a solution.

    I dont want to give out the url and increase the traffic to my site. Its not the way I installed the plugins, its not my internet. Although it did suddenly become slow overnight.

    PLEASE SOMEONE HELP

    Found 579 domains hosted on the same web server as mine. Which is close to the same as those on host gator.

    Would just like to know if it is godaddy or something I am doing.

    I'd bet on it being your hosting. WordPress generally performs reasonably well even on cheap hosts. And, no, it isn't your fiber net connection. Your connection should be a factor at all. As for providing you with a solution, thus far you have decided against providing any of the information we've asked for. No information === no solution.

    It's my experience that GD sites tend to have all the performance characteristics of cold treacle compared to the same sites hosted elsewhere.

    That is the server. I waited 20-30 seconds before it responded at all. http://www.webpagetest.org timed out trying to load the site. On a second try, it took almost 25 seconds to load with about 9 seconds being backend processing. That confirms my initial guess of an "overworked server". You say that "no sense to me how it would be over worked serve if I only have 2 sites on my hosting account" but that isn't the calculation you need to make. The relevant factor is all sites on the server. You say that is 579 sites. That may be the same as on HostGator but the actual physical hardware makes a huge difference.

    So what are my options now?

    I would like to be able to host multiple sites for around the same price that actually work.

    Is there any way GoDaddy can actually fix this or do i just ask for my money back on the hosting ?

    Can I keep my email and domain names registered at godaddy and just use another hosting plan somewhere else like hostgator?

    Who really offers the best hosting to host multiple wordpress sites?

    Although we cannot endorse them, there are some hosts listed here. Also searching the forums using the keywords "host" or "hosting" may provide you with some suggestions.

    You should be able to keep your domain name with GD.

    I like what I have read about host gator....now its a matter of talking to someone at godaddy and seeing if i can get a refund.

    So I am just wondering what happens if I switch my hosting and I have the same issue?

    See the list posted by esmi for possible hosts. WordPress should run decently well on even lower end servers, and I've done it. What you are seeing is very abnormal. Yes, you can have your domain registered at GoDaddy and host it elsewhere. You will need to change the DNS settings to the new host's DNS servers.

    So I spent a little bit of time with GoDaddy on the phone and did a little troubleshooting.

    I have another site that I have that seems to load up just fine and rather quickly.

    The GoDaddy agent I spoke with have me rename the plugins folder to plugins.bak

    Then when I went to my site voila it loaded rather quickly.

    He said it was disabling the plugins and that this is the root cause of my issues.

    Here is a list of my current plugins:

      akismet
      buddypress
      formidable
      gtrans
      jetpack

    So I am now going through and naming all of these to .bak individually and seeing if it solves my issue.

    I recognize all but 'formidable'. You should be able to run five plugins, though. You should be able to run three times that and still have better than 20 second load time.

    I agree. The thing is when I disable the plugins by themselves....the site still seems to hang. When I disable the plugins folder it runs great.

    Seems like the hosting is not the issue for now. If it was the hosting why is it when I load my other non wordpress site it works fine?

    Is your other site dynamic or static (straight html)?

    The other site is built using Adobe MUSE.

    I am still having the slow loading issue with my wordpress site and nothing except disabling the plugin folder via ftp has fixed it.

    Im at a stand still and very frustrated and fed up.

    Seems to me the site got hacked or something but the security plugin I am running seems to think otherwise. I just dont get why it is running so slow.

    So I went back to my site and as of right now have the plugin folder named

    plugins.bak

    This is now still not solving any issue I am having with the site itself.

    The other site is built using Adobe MUSE.

    So it is a static site, correct? No PHP? No database? Just HTML? A site like that is a lot less demanding on a server.

    Ok here is some interesting info.

    I love to find out how things work and enjoy troubleshooting.

    Yesterday a reverse ip look up told me that I had 600 sites on the same server as mine.

    Today I find that there are 4200 sites on the my server.

    Today the site wouldn't even load and the rep from godaddy is changing my account from windows to Linux. Also he said that someone that was on my server was being a "bad neighbor".

    Seems to me that they really have every excuse out there and here i am spending another day of wasting time without my site being up.
