    Hey there Carol !

    Hope you are having a great day!

    I’m sorry to hear about the issue that you encountered. In order to help you better with the issue, we’d need a bit more details about this from your end. Could you please let us know if you see any errors while updating/activating the plugin? If so, could you let us know what it is, preferably with screenshots?

    I tried to replicate the issue in a test site of ours but couldn’t. I was able to activate the Defender plugin as expected.

    Could you please grant Support Access from the WPMU DEV Dashboard plugin so that we can go in and take a closer look? This handy guide can help you do that. Please let us know here in your next response when it is enabled.

    Hope this helps. We’ll be looking forward to hearing back from you. Thanks!

    Kind regards,

    Click delete if you see the second version and re-install via the WPMU Dev deshboard
