    From the dashboard I can’t delete any plugins or themes. On the front end I can’t delete my avatar but I have no problem deleting posts in my activity stream or deleting uploaded files.

    Anybody seen this before? Any ideas what’s going on with my server??

    @akukskuks Never seen it myself before. Are you on a multisite installation? Are you the super admin of that multisite installation or just the site admin of a subsite? Do you have any membership plugin which could have caused conflict? Did you create/delete another site/super admin account?

    Thanks for the reply @mercime. Not multisite, and I’m admin but not super admin. I’ve disabled the “Members” plugin to no avail. Did not create any other admin-type accounts. This is the error I get when I attempt to delete a plugin:

    “Plugin could not be deleted due to an error: Could not fully remove the plugin(s) plugin.php.”

    The reason I think it’s the server is I’ve been having a terrible time trying to get the RSS feeds to work. No plugin works at all, and the WP feeds on my dashboard only display:

    “RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: couldn’t connect to host”
    “RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Failed to connect to 2607:f8b0:4006:803::1014: Network is unreachable”

    Additionally, I am unable to connect to download new plugins or themes from the dashboard. We recently moved to a Linux server as our Windows server was acting all wonky. Is this the root of the problem, and do you have any advice on what the super admin can do to change it? We’re totally stuck.

    Sounds like your server directories haven’t got the correct permissions set for read write execute, the WP codex has information of perms required for WP directories in an install you may need to check with your host what is currently set – can you upload images to the media library?

    Yes I can @hnla – no problems uploading media.

    I will check the settings with my host. Is this the part of the codex to which you are referring or is there something more specific?

    From the dashboard I can’t delete any plugins or themes … RSS Error: WP HTTP Error … I am unable to connect to download new plugins or themes from the dashboard …

    @akukskuks BuddyPress activation does not cause those issues. Deactivate BuddyPress. Are the issues still there in your install? If so, you have get WP working without issues first before activating BP again.

    How did you install WordPress, via webhost one-click WP install or manually? If you used webhost’s installation script, backup database to computer, then drop tables and start re-uploading WordPress manually via s/FTP. BP does not work well with one-click webhost scripts.
