    I went to one of my sites I had already installed WF on and did not see it anymore n the admin list of plugins. I thought I was losing my mind because I know I had it there. Then I tried to install it because it was not showing up anywhere and this is the message I got:
    "Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wordfence.3.5.1.zip…

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the plugin…

    Destination folder already exists. /home/wwwtruck/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordfence/

    Plugin install failed.

    Return to Plugin Installer"

    What do I do now and how did this happen?

    Thank you:-)

    Man I sleep better with WordFence on the job!!!

    That looks like a permissions issue. You'll need to manually delete that directory /wp-contents/plugins/wordfence and then try again. Make sure your web server can write to wp-contents/plugins
