Support » Plugin: Meta Slider » metaslider disappeared and cannot reinstall

  • Resolved ericatyoga


    The issue can be found here:
    The preview works: No
    It works with other themes: Yes, it did.
    It works when I disable all other plugins: Yes, it did.
    Meta Slider version: I am not certain. The version prior to the new update.

    I just made my website a few weeks ago using the Vantage theme. The MetaSlider plug-in that comes with the theme was working fine. Last week it said the plug-in needed to be updated. After I updated the plug-in, it disappeared. I have tried to reinstall MetaSlider, but I am told the folder already exists:

    Downloading install package from…

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the plugin…

    Destination folder already exists. /home/content/89/12199589/html/wp-content/plugins/ml-slider/

    Plugin install failed.

    I don’t know how to delete this so I can reinstall it, or how I can find it for use.

    Hi ericatyoga,

    Do you have FTP login details for your site? If so you’ll need to use an FTP client to log in, browse to html/wp-content/plugins and delete the ‘ml-slider’ folder.

    Alternatively, do you have a login for your hosting control panel? If so you could log into that. Usually there is a file manager style thing that lets you browse the files on your server, again you’ll need to delete the ml-slider folder.

    Once it’s removed from the server you can reinstall Meta Slider in the usual way.


    Awesome. Fixed. Thank-you!!
