Smush Pro Error after activating Plugin.

I installed the Pro plugin for the Image smusher.. and when I clicked on Activate PLugin, I got this error:

Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wp_smush_rating_message() (previously declared in /mnt/data/vhosts/ in /mnt/data/vhosts/ on line 88

This is my very first experience with your plugin after buying a full version and now this error. Not going good for a new beginning...

    Hey Ishan,

    This error means you still have the free version active as well, so it's trying to declare the same function twice since it's like having the same plugin active twice.

    If you deactivate and delete the free version then you should be good to go :slight_smile:

    You can always get the latest pro version through our WPMU DEV Dashboard which it looks like you already have installed.

    We are working on making the upgrade from free to pro smoother to avoid any chance of having this situation happen.

    If you have any further questions just let us know.
