Destination folder already exists...but it doesn't! (3 posts)

    I am trying to install the page links to plug in and I am getting the following error:

    Destination folder already exists. /home8/donnabec/public_html/wp-content/plugins/page-links-to/

    But when I go to my installed plug in folder, it's not there. Even when I look at "all" or "installed".

    Anyone know what the issue is? Thanks!

    That message generally shows up when the folder already exists in your directory structure -- WordPress attempts to create the folder during plugin installation, but if it finds a folder already there by the same name, the installation will fail and give you the message you are seeing: "Destination folder already exists" This sometimes happens because of a previously failed plugin installation.

    Have a look at your directory on your web server - use FTP or if you have CPanel, use the File Manager and navigate to /wp-content/plugins/

    If you see a folder named: /page-links-to/ delete it, then attempt re-installation via the Plugins page in your Dashboard.

    Lisa, you are my hero! It worked AND I figured out what a a CPanel is and how to use it! You rock!
