3.4.2 Plugins ERROR Disabling themselves automatically

  • 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.

    (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.

    What do you want the server logs for ?

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

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

    Please post a url.

    post what url kmessinger?

    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.


    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.
