Support » Fixing WordPress » Missing my akismet plugin

  • fayeoney


    I downloaded akismet back in June, and discovered that it is missing from my plugin list. I went back to “add plugins” and downloaded it again, but I got this message: Destination folder already exists. /home/fayeone1/public_html/wp-content/plugins/akismet/
    Somehow akismet is gone, and I can’t reinstall because of a folder that already exists.
    Can anyone help?
    Thank you,

    Faye Oney

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Ten theme to rule out any theme-specific problems?



    Thank you, I will try that and see if that works. I’m still kind of a newbie here on WordPress…It will take me a while to get used to this stuff!
