    Hi Guys,

    Im having trouble with installing the Yoast SEO plugin on my wordpress site. On the "dashboard" Of Yoast I get the following error:

    Your theme contains a meta description, which blocks WordPress SEO from working properly, please delete the following line, or press fix it:
    <meta name="description" content="<?php the_excerpt_rss(); ?>" />

    When I hit fix it I get the following message:
    Warning: fopen(....nl/public_html/wp-content/themes/wp-theme/header.php.wpseobak) [function.fopen]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /.....nl/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/admin/pages/dashboard.php on line 45

    What is the meaning of /header/php.wpseobak? I've entered the line in the search option of dreamweaver in header.php and deleted it cant find a file in my theme folder with the name: /header.php.wpseobak

    I've deleted the line in dreamweaver and saved it on my server but the problem remains! I've tried to de-activate the plugin and activate it again but with no result. Also downloaded the plugin from wordpress.org and transferd it to my plugins folder with FTP also with no result.

    Any one some ideas that can help me fix this problem? Is this essential for Yoast to work properly?

    Thanks for your help
    Take care
