Can Only Activate One Plugin At A Time In Network Dashboard


On a WP 4.1.1 multisite network, the bulk plugin activation has ceased working. Only one plugin at a time will activate. Bulk activation fails.

WPMUDEV dashboard admin access has been granted to the site and Haong is currently working on the same network to resolve this thread:

Any help will be appreciated.

    Hi Jude,

    I know the issue is specific to this install as I do not have the issue on other WP 4.1.1 networks with very similar configurations.

    I have compared WP config, Rewrite rules, etc. to working installations and cannot find a difference.

    I just do not know what to look for that would be causing that problem.

    Hey @SooBahkDo

    Its really strange, I've never faced this before ..

    Anyways I can give you some pointers which you can use to debug the issue.

    -> Check your PHP error log. See if there are any error entires
    -> Talk to your host to see if they are using the latest version of PHP and Mysql for this site
    -> If possible try to activate the plugin from a different computer, network and browser.

    Let me know if you find anything interesting in your logs
