Yoast plugin missing


In my blog yoast plugin is missing. if i try to install again …it is saying that the folder already exists. now what to do???


Reason: It could be due to incomplete installation left some files.

To resolve

  1. Install WP File Manager plugin
  2. Delete “wordpress-seo” directory you can find inside /wp-content/plugins/ location.
  3. Remove WP File Manager plugin
  4. Then try to install Yoast SEO plugin again from the Dashboard.


You can directly access your Root Folder and go to your Plugin folder.
Find the folder Wordpress-SEO and remove all.

Now login to your dashboard and try to install it.


Connect your server with FTP client,and delete wordpress-seo from plugin directory. Then install it again.
