I was working on the site and I removed some custom JS (which by the way should not affect anything but) I start getting HTTP 500 error. I enabled the debug mood and tried deactivating all plugins but no luck. Then I tried updating the plugin and it started working unless I activated the WPBakery back.

WPML is working fine but I just a fatal error after activating WPBakery plugin.

Fatal error: Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function hash() in /home/p53softenica/ Stack trace: #0 /home/p53softenica/ Twig_Environment->getTemplateClass('plugins-status....') #1 /home/p53softenica/ Twig_Environment->loadTemplate('plugins-status....') #2 /home/p53softenica/ Twig_Environment->render('plugins-status....', Array) #3 /home/p53softenica/ WPML_Twig_Template->show(Array, 'plugins-status....') #4 /home/p53softenica/ in /home/p53softenica/ on line 331

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'll be happy to help you with this.

Please try to to do a manual update by following these steps:

1. Ensure that you have a full backup for the site.

2. Log in to your account and go to the Downloads section. Download the WPML components that you need. You will receive a ZIP file for each one of WPML’s components.

3. Deactivate the current WPML version that you are using. Be sure to deactivate WPML and all its components. Otherwise, the installation files may be locked and not writeable. Don’t worry, your translations are not going to be modified.

4. Delete the plugin, so that you can install the new version. Note: if you cannot delete from inside WordPress, use an FTP program to delete the folders of WPML and its components from wp-content/plugins.

5. In the WordPress admin, go to Plugins -> Add New -> Upload and upload the ZIP files that you downloaded. Alternatively, if you cannot upload plugins directly to WordPress, unzip each file. A directory will be created. Then upload the unzipped directories to your site’s ‘wp-contents/plugins’ directory and overwrite the existing folders for WPML and its components.

6. Log in to your site, go to Plugins and activate WPML core first and then its components.
