"Fatal error" message when activating any plugin (7 posts)

    Hello,

    I rarely post messages on this forum since I've been using WordPress for over 7 years but I really need some help on this one!

    On WordPress 3.4.2, PHP 5.3, when I try activating any plugin whatsoever in WordPress' admin, I get a "Fatal error" and no other message. No error logs is created in error_log and I really wonder what's wrong with that!

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Try checking your site's error logs.

    What's the "Fatal Error" full message ?

    It just says there was a fatal error which prevented the plugin from activating (in French). No other clue is given. I tried inspecting the HTML in case there was a hidden div somewhere telling more but to no avail....

    And as for the error logs, where shall I look for them ? There's an error_log file in the public_html folder (root folder) but there are just a few lines dating back in 2011.

    Thanks for your help guys! :)

    Hi esmi,

    I know it sounds weird but there really just is the error message with the fatal error in French. Nothing else is given ...

    Ask your hosts for access to your error logs. There is no way we can help without more details.
