There is no problem with the installation on my server.

Can you please try in the file .htaccess the following (line 8):

Code: Select all

# Base directory
#RewriteBase /blog/
instead of

Code: Select all

# Base directory
#RewriteBase /

Hi Edi, I've tried the changes you suggest and it still won't allow me to upload a new plugin. All I see is a blank page until I delete the plugin and refresh than everything is back to normal.

Because it works on your server I also disabled my firewall to see if that was causing issues and the result was the same.

Strange that some plugins work and some won't. I've installed a2a, backup, cookies-banner, G3nshop and vanilla-comments successfully.

a2a installed fine and configured fine when activated.

Backup gave me this in my error log file:
/blog/bl-content/workspaces/backup/*.log

but it still seemed to perform the back up correctly.

G3nshop installed but I couldn't activate it. Also worth noting that when I tried to browse to the link on the G3nshop git hub page to view the demo some script kept trying to upload to my computer and I had to ctrl/alt/delete out of the browser to stop it. Virus attempt maybe?

Vanilla-comments installed fine and activated with config page available.

One other thing to note is that I also see the same line in my error log for the simple-stats plugin that I seen for the backup plugin.
/blog/bl-content/workspaces/simple-stats/*.log
Went to both folders for each plugin and see all the log files there so not sure why this error is showing up or what it means.

Could it be related to the install issues somehow?

Does the directory /blog/bl-content/workspaces/ exist? What properties does it have?

Hi Edi, yes the folder workspaces exists and has a file permission of 755.

Inside the folder are these folders: api, cookies-banner, html-code, navigation, opengraph, simple-stats and twitter-cards.

I removed the backup plugin as I didn't want it. I do my own backups regularly.

All the folders in workspaces are 755 and the only one with files inside is simple-stats and those are 644.

I have suphp installed on the server which is why everything is 755,
