    tired to add it again but receive an error....

    Called host company regarding all the spam we were receiving - they deactivated/reactivated account. During that process Akismet was removed from the plugins page...It is on the server, but not in the Plugins page, therefore SPAM galore again.....

    So I tried to add it as a new plugin and receive this error:

    Destination folder already exists. /home/jkecomm1/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/akismet/

    Plugin install failed.

    Hope this makes sense.

    HELP!

    Thanks!

    Do you have ftp-access to your site?
    If so, open wp-content folder, open plugins folder, open akismet folder, mark and delete all the files, go back out to plugins folder, mark and delete akismet folder.
    If you don't have ftp-access, tell your provider to do it for you.
