    I had to disable the seriously simple podcasting plugin tonight, after I updated it to the latest version.

    Here is below the message that I was getting, when attempting to update that plugin:


    Warning: require_once(includes/class-podmotor-handler.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/crefovi3/public_html/ialci.org/wp-content/plugins/seriously-simple-podcasting/seriously-simple-podcasting.php on line 38

    Fatal error: require_once(): Failed opening required ‘includes/class-podmotor-handler.php’ (include_path=’/home/crefovi3/public_html/ialci.org/wp-content/plugins/official-google-site-verification-plugin/external/php-client::.:/usr/local/php56/pear’) in /home/crefovi3/public_html/ialci.org/wp-content/plugins/seriously-simple-podcasting/seriously-simple-podcasting.php on line 38″

    PLEASE KINDLY RESOLVE THIS ISSUE ON YOUR PLUGIN BECAUSE IT IS DEFINITELY FAULTY.

  • @psykro – I’m waiting for someone to let me know:

    I logged into my CPanel, went into File Manager and renamed the seriously simple plugin folder to “.hold” at the end of the folder. I was then able to login to my WordPress site. From there I could see that the current (bad) version of Seriously Simple Podcast was deactivated. So I downloaded the newest version .zip (still 1.16) from WordPress.org, then uploaded it to my site. Now I have two instances of SSP listed in my plugins on my site.

    If I delete the old (deactivated) version of SSP to remove the duplicate plugin listing, will all my podcasts/settings remain or will they be deleted along with the old plugin?

    Hi

    No the podcast settings are stored in the database, so if you delete the old version of the plugin you will not loose any settings.

    However to be sure, I would make a backup of the database first.

    @green4keeps, did you figure out how not to lose all your settings from the previous version?

    @psykro thanks for fixing this as quickly as you did! I am not sure how to add the new version though. When i try to upload it, it tells me it already exists. Do I have to delete it from the Existing plugins page? And if I do, will I lose all my previous settings?

    @marianney, follow these steps I took to disable the old plugin, install the new, and remove the old:

    – Logged into my CPanel at my web host
    – Opened File Manager
    – Found the wp-content/plugins folder and renamed the seriously simple plugin folder by adding “.hold” at the end of the folder name
    – Then able to login to my WordPress site
    – On plugins page, the old (bad) version of Seriously Simple Podcast was deactivated
    – Downloaded the newest version .zip (still 1.16) from WordPress.org and uploaded it to my site as a new plugin
    – On same plugins page (in WP backend), delete the old (deactivated) version of SSP to remove the duplicate plugin listing

    Everything is working properly now.

    @green4keeps and @psykro – how strange, I didn’t see the reply about the databases before I wrote my comment, now I see it. Sorry for the duplicate question.

    Everything seems to be ok now. For some reason, it wasn’t allowing me to update the plugin before as it kept telling me it’s already installed, but after waiting an hour or so, it seems to be ok now.

    Thanks again!

    thank you all for your help in giving assistance to the community in resolving these issues. Yes the update to v1.16 and the subsequent v1.16.1 are working fine from everything we see around the original error. If you have any other questions please let us know.

    I AM REALLY ANNOYED THAT YOU AND YOUR PEOPLE MESSED UP MY WEBSITES LIKE THAT. YOU NEED TO IMPROVE YOUR PERFOMRANCE IN THE FUTURE.

    I have now been able to install the new 1.16.1. plugin version on my WP dashboard of Crefovi.com.

    However, when I reactivated the plugin, just now, I get the following message:

    “The Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin requires PHP 5.5 or later. Please upgrade your PHP version or deactivate the plugin..”

    HOW DO I INSTALL PHP 5.5. on my WPdashboard?

    What does PHP 5.5. even mean?

    Here are some tips provided by the plugin developer (who stupidly released a shitty and unworkable version of the plugin a few days ago):

    Hello,

    The plugin v1.16 has been updated in WordPress.org. If you’re able to install it directly from wp-admin that will work just fine. If you need to you can remove the previous plugin files either via FTP or File manager and then reinstall the plugin fresh from there.

    Very sorry about this trouble. Please let me know if there’s anything else we can do to help.

    Hi @agauberti

    The latest version of the Seriously Simple Podcasting plugin contains an update to support the new Seriously Simple Hosting extension. In order to support this update the PHP version requirement has been increased to PHP version 5.5.

    If you want to use the latest version of the plugin you will need to contact your web host and ask them to upgrade the PHP version to one newer than PHP 5.5. Currently WordPress recommends PHP version 7 or greater, so if your web host is running an older version than 5.5 it is recommended to ask them to upgrade.

    If you are not able to get them to do this you can download the previous release from the plugin advanced page here

    Simply scroll to the bottom of the page to the ‘Previous Versions’ section, select version 1.15.2 from the dropdown and click on the download button. Once you have done that, deactivate and delete the 1.16.1 version of the plugin and install the 1.15.2 version.

    Regards
