I keep getting this error code. Went to update Connections Business Directory and the update failed. Deactivated Connections, including cMap template and all extensions and now it won’t reinstall.
I’ve literally had nothing but issues ever since I installed this thing. I just don’t understand what is going on. I’ve never had so many issues with a plugin on WordPress ever.04/23/2018 at 8:50 am #459849Steven ZahmKeymaster
RE: Went to update Connections Business Directory and the update failed. Deactivated Connections, including cMap template and all extensions and now it won’t reinstall.
Sorry to hear you are having trouble! This is actually a WordPress error because WordPress failed to properly update the plugin. This is unfortunately out of my control. This is actually a somewhat common error users eventually face and is not limited to Connections as shown by this quick web search:
WordPress is pretty robust when it comes to installing and upgrading plugins but this process can fail for many reasons.
Luckily the solution to fix this should not not be too difficult. Here’s how:
- Log into your site with FTP or by using the web hosts file manager.
- Navigate to the
- You should find a folder named
connections. Delete this folder and only this folder.
- Now you can reinstall Connections normally.
- You will find all you data is safe after Connections is reinstalled.
There is no need to delete or reinstall any of Connections’ addons such as cMap. It will function properly after Connections is reinstalled.

What other issues have you had? I’ve search the support forums for anything else posted by you and was unable to find any? Did you post under another name/email address? I’d really like to know what issues you faced so I can look into them.
Hope this helps, let me know.05/14/2018 at 11:11 pm #462407CRG AdminParticipant
After a panic-filled evening, including having found the fix you referenced on my own (which did not work as the file did not appear), I contacted WordPress support who deleted that file from their back end. Now, I’m kinda terrified to install any of the Connections updates.
I did not previously post re: the other issues because I figured them out before I could have received assistance. It’s just been tedious. Since I got this issue fixed after I contacted WP support that evening, I didn’t check the forum site until I saw the next update available today and even remembered that I tried to reach out. Thanks.
