  • Resolved IainPurdie


    Our site just went down the with below message appearing regardless of whether you’re accessing the site or admin console:

    Warning: require(/var/www/vhosts/ failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 66
    Warning: require(/var/www/vhosts/ failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 66
    Fatal error: require(): Failed opening required '/var/www/vhosts/' (include_path='.:/opt/plesk/php/5.6/share/pear') in /var/www/vhosts/ on line 66

    I checked this plug-in’s page when I spotted it named in the error, and spotted that it was updated “8 minutes ago”. I’ve no idea how to resolve this. I don’t have console access to out site’s server, and renaming the plug-in’s folder in an effort to prevent it functioning has done nothing.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • Dear lainPurdie,

    we had the same problem.
    In order for you to acess dashboar of wordpress site, please rename your folder located in wp-content/plugins/google-calendar-events via ftp to “google-calendar-events_old”.

    Now you can access your WPress Dashboard.
    Let me know if this helped.

    Will have a shot in a while. I’m backing the site up at the moment!

    I did try renaming the folder, but it didn’t help. Could be it was just cached and I needed a little more patience 🙂

    The updated plugin clashed with my homepage layout and the layout of another page where the plugin is used. The /wp-admin/ page responded with an error 500.

    I re-uploaded by FTP an older version I had on my PC and it’s back to normal.

    I have to say that I’ve stopped using what would have been the more useful function of this plugin a long time ago because it doesn’t work. At this time I am only using it to embed the grid calendar only.

    From this latest update I have no idea what exactly got changed and how but obviously it’s screwing up majorly.

    Hey all,

    There was a small window on Dec 28th, 2017 where Simple Calendar showed an update that wasn’t ready for release yet.

    Earlier today we released what should be the working & fixed version 3.1.11. If you download the latest release from it should work as expected.

    If for some reason, that download doesn’t work you can download the previous release (3.1.10) on at the direct zip link here:

    Please let us know if you run into issues after downloading a fresh copy of 3.1.11.

    Thank you for helping to make Simple Calendar better by reporting bugs or issues you find!

    Hey all,

    I wanted to let you know that there was a hotfix released today ( which should allow you to upgrade without the site crashing. If your PHP version is incompatible you should see a notice on the page explaining that and the plugin will deactivate itself.

    Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you run into issues- I’ll be monitoring these threads to help as much as possible.
