      seems like the plugin “Sprout Invoices” has problems with the latest WordPress update. I deactivated the plugin by renaming the plugin folder- and your website is working again. 🙂

      Please ask the plugin delevopers for a compatible update.

      Best regards,

  3. Updated to this newer version of WP 4.8.2 and my Visual Pagebuilder no longer shows any content. I turned off and on again each plugin, updated all, was not Yeost. Still, nothing.

    After WP update 4.8.2, my Jetpack plugin and all my settings totally disappeared from my site. Jetpack is no longer on my installed plugin menu and when I try to reinstall Jetpack I get the error “Installation failed: Destination folder already exists”. I am a computer novice, please help!

    1. 1and1help says:


      The last error message might occure because you didn’t delete the plugin before, just deactivated it? Try to delete it completely and re-install it from scratch.

      If the disappeared settings issue pops up again, try to deactivate all plugins. Then activate Jetpack again and check if it works. Then re-activate the plugins one after another. When the error happens again, the plugin you re-activated at last should be the one which triggers the problems.

        I am unable to activate, deactivate or delete the Jetpack plugin because it no longer appears on my plugin list in any fashion.

      Salut Rolande,

      with Managed WordPress we don’t offer access to the WordPress editor.

      You might want to switch from Managed to Standard WordPress : https://assistance.1and1.fr/hebergement-c65619/creation-de-site-web-c85168/1and1-app-center-c85228/wordpress-managed-c85276/convertir-une-application-1and1-app-center-managedsafe-mode-en-par-defaut-a792843.html

      Afterwards you can activate the editor through your wp-config.php: https://community.1and1.com/enabling-the-wordpress-theme-and-plugin-editor-wordpress-free-mode/

      Best regards,
