    Hi, I can’t recall when this happened because I’m using WP remote to update my sites, but I suddently got this error:

    Warning: require_once(/home/***/public_html/wp-content/plugins/smart-slider-3/includes/smartslider3.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/***/public_html/wp-content/plugins/smart-slider-3/smart-slider-3.php on line 40

    Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘/home/***/public_html/wp-content/plugins/smart-slider-3/includes/smartslider3.php’ (include_path=’.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php’) in /home/***/public_html/wp-content/plugins/smart-slider-3/smart-slider-3.php on line 40

    I had to rename the plugin’s directory to be able to go to WP Admin.
    After doing that, I’ve still got these errors visible in WP Admin:

    Warning: fopen(/home/***/public_html/wp-content/plugins/smart-slider-3/smart-slider-3.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/***/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4784

    Warning: fread() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/***/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4787
    Warning: fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, boolean given in /home/***/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php on line 4790

    I’m using the free version of the Vantage theme from SiteOrigin. I didn’t find any related items in the support forums of that theme.

    Hi @webblish!

    These error messages are meaning, that some of our files are missing. You should go to your ftp, and delete our folder with everything in it (don’t worry, your sliders will stay):
    wp-content/plugins/smart-slider-3/
    then download our installer, what you can do here on wp.org: https://wordpress.org/plugins/smart-slider-3/
    and rather try to install it by uploading our files through ftp:
    https://smartslider3.helpscoutdocs.com/article/55-wordpress-installation#ftp
    just to make sure, that all files are getting up into your server. If you would use Filezilla, that writes out, if there is a problem with the uploading of the files, and gives you a list of the not uploaded ones.

    Many thanks for the swift reply. I replaced the files by uploading a new ZIP-file, and that worked liked a charm! Thanks again!
