  • Hey guys,

    Installed WP 4.7 from WordPress.com onto my Web Host. A few months have passed and now I can’t install new plugins. I need to install WordPress.org files.

    Can I just overwrite the current WordPress.com files with the WordPress.org files?

    I tried Exporting and Importing my data on a fresh install but had no luck using this method

    Installed WP 4.7 from WordPress.com onto my Web Host.

    I’m not sure that makes sense.

    Can I just overwrite the current WordPress.com files with the WordPress.org files?

    Yes, reinstalling WP that way should not be a problem.

    I can’t install plugins so this must be the reason…picking up a copy of WP that expires…does this sound correct?

    WordPress does not expire.

    1. Please provide a link to your site.
    2. Where/how are you hosting your site
    3. How did you install it?

    Installed via Cpanel
    Hosting via Netvirtue

    Have you contacted your hosting company’s tech support?

    Here are the definitive steps to install wordpress. I do not recommend “one click” installers:

    Thought I would try the one click install method…never again

    Few errors in the error log

    What error do you get if you try to add a plugin?

    I can manually add it via ftp with no issues but I dont have the option to add it via the wordpress admin atea
