  • Resolved arthurki1



    I updated the yoastseo plugin today and when I try to open my dashboard I get this Error message:

    Warning: include(/var/www/web24493669/html/blubberwp/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/inc/sitemaps/class-sitemap-timezone.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/web24493669/html/blubberwp/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce-admin/vendor/composer/ClassLoader.php on line 444

    When I deactivate the plugin everything works as it should. Any idea how I can fix this?

    I installed the older Pluginversion to fix the problem for now. Here’s a guide if anyone needs it:

    This issue occurs when the plugin installation or update couldn’t complete correctly. The fatal error is telling you that the plugin couldn’t find one of the cores Yoast SEO plugin files. In this case, can you please reinstall it manually using File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to see if this resolves the issue? 

    You can learn more about how to update manually using FTP here: You will need an FTP program such as FileZilla and your FTP details, which can be obtained from your host provider. 

    Note, that when you install via FTP you are not expect to lose your data or SEO settings, even if prompted to overwrite the existing files. All your data will be saved and will appear and work after manually installing Yoast.

    This problem is not solved in the latest version of Yoast (12.9.1).
    Downgrading to 12.9 and uploading the plugin over FTP (we should be very ashamed to do this!), with root access solved the problem.
