Plugin Activation: Fatal Error

  • Brand new to WordPress.org…

    I’ve tried to activate several plugins after manually copying the files onto my server and they always say “Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.”

    This is the third time it’s happened. Am I copying them wrong? Whenever I can upload a zip file of the plugin and unzip it in my server, they’re fine… but when I copy them manually they get errors.

  • WHat does it mean “copy manually”? How do you do that? We usually say that we upload a plugin (and any other files) via FTP.

    What I always do:
    – download
    – unzip
    – read the README
    – upload via FTP (what is instructed)
    – activate

    I’m having this issue as well. I have attempted to activate three different plugins that give me this same message. “plugin could not be activated because it created a fatal error”

    They are:

    “now reading”
    “wp-postrating”
    “post star rating”

    All other plugins I’ve activated since upgrading to WP2.2 have worked without a hitch.

    I’m having this issue as well with the Kimili flash plugin

    Same problem here! Anyone find any solutions?
