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.
