I am trying to: update

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:

hidden link

He actualizado el plugin y me ha dado un error fatal del que adjunto imágenes. He tenido que restablecer una copia desde el servidor porque me he quedado si acceso a la web.

Podría decirme porqué la actualización ha causado este problema y cómo puedo actualizar el plugin sin que esto vuelva a ocurrir?.

Un saludo

Thank you for contacting WPML Support. Sorry for the trouble, Could you please delete and install WPML plugin manually?

To do a manual update please follow these steps:

1. Please take your full site backup.

2. Deactivate the existing WPML plugin.

3. Delete the plugin files – this does not delete your translations. You will simply delete the plugin files from your "wp-content/plugins" folder, NOT the database records.

4. Download the updated plugins from our servers ( and upload them to the plugin directory.

5. Activate the WPML plugin and add-ons.

We have another client who was able to solve it the sameway:

Thank you

I have a doubt. I have installed
WPML Multilingual CMS
WPML String Translation

Do I have to follow your instruction with both of them or just with WPML Multilingual CMS which was the one which caused the fatal error?

Best regards
