[resolved] Plug-in corrupted ??? (26 posts)

    I need an answer pretty fast on this one. Thanks.

    I went to upload a plugin for a drop down menu and when I activated it, code appeared at the top of the dashboard page and the website I'm working on.

    What happened and what can I do to undo this? I went to delete the plug-in I had just uploaded and its not there.

    Anybody have even a vague idea of what I did wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know about her error but here is the error code that I am getting when I try to sign into wp-admin portion of my site.

    "Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/gunther/public_html/wp-content/plugins/submit-to-any-for-wordpress/submit-to-any.php:72) in /home/gunther/public_html/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 850"

    I need to fix this ASAP as I have a lot of work I need to get done on the site and this is preventing me from doing so. I need to know how to get into the system and remove whichever plug in is causing this problem.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Thats what I'm getting. I discovered that I uploaded something that was not a plug-in, but for some reason it went through all the steps as if it was. Now I can't find the file foler anywhere to delete it.

    THANKS.

    I'm in the same boat... this was supposed to be big update day for the website and now I'm really stuck because of this.

    briantnaz,

    I need to know how to get into the system and remove whichever plug in is causing this problem.

    Use your ftp client -- delete the plugin files.

    I know, I am sorry. I totally misread the thread. Im actually going to back now, read yours (again) and try to help you.

    ok, so .. youre saying this:

    /home/james122/public_html/wp-content/plugins/drop_down_theme/

    doesnt exist?

    There's 2 ways I see of fixing that. The easiest would be to just upload the file using your FTP client. Put them there. Where wordpress expects them.

    The second involves meddling in the database.

    ok, thanks so much for replying.

    Yes, thats exactly right. /home/james122/public_html/wp-content/plugins/drop_down_theme/ does not exist.

    Do you mean upload the files that I accidently uploaded into the plug-ins, into another folder where wordpress would recognize what it is?

    wordpress is looking here:

    /home/james122/public_html/wp-content/plugins/drop_down_theme/

    so FTP in, and upload the plugin there. Read the readme inside the plugin zip. It explains the "old" way of installing a plugin.

    Youre just giving wordpress what it wants. Follow? the files arent there, so PUT them there with your FTP client.

    YES! Now I follow! THANKS for clarifying! Let me see if that works. Thankfully, I've used the "old" way before :)

    I went to transfer the file into my plugin folder and it said that one already existed and wanted to know if I wanted it merged (etc... we all know that line). Anyways, its not listed there! It says its there but there's no way for me to see or access it.

    dreamweaver isnt an ftp client, if thats what youre using.

    whats the url to this blog please..

    furthermore Ill be happy to look and see what i see via FTP, but you would have to contact me off the forum or provide your email.

    I'm using SmartFTP

    The site is http://jamesnyondo09.com

    However, we have the site on a redirect right now, while we're working on it...and especially since its so messed up. We have a high viewer count so i can't remove the re-direct at just any given time.

    Thanks so much for the offer and the suggestions. I really do appreciate it.

    ok, well, whats this?

    http://jamesnyondo09.com/wp-content/plugins/drop_down_theme/

    clearly the directory Ive been asking about exists.

    You need to find it and delete it.

    I see that youre working on that. i still see the error but notice that the directory is still intact. delete the directory as well, and see if that doesnt help.

    If after doing that, its still not fixed, give us the url of where you got that plugin so I can look at the plugin files myself.

    no. delete the directory named drop_down_theme thats inside the plugins directory.

    So I went ahead and "merged" and now it is showing up in plug-ins. I went to delete it and it wouldn't.

    [15:53:19] 550 Can't remove directory: Directory not empty

    opened the location and no files were there to delete, if thats what it is referring to.

    Can't remove directory: Directory not empty

    thats right, theres an error_log in there. I saw it when I clicked on the link above 10 mins ago.

    try to rename the folder drop-down and then delete it, sometimes there are some weird permissions errors.

    :D I was emailing and phoning all my tech buddies trying to get answers on this. It hit me that they are all guys... Not like it matters to me, but I find it very cool to know that the person who helped me solved this is a 'Ms.' :)
