Website stops working when installing plugins

Hello there,
I am writing to you as I, for the very first time, am attempting to start up a Multi-Site network.

This is for me to have a site for me, blogs + selling of my books (I am a self published author) and services (web design etc) + have a support system for my clients.

I recently purchased a subscription from you guys for your plugins and themes and have so far spent 12 hours today attempting to install them with no luck.

First of all your CoursePress Pro and Market Press (Course Press Bundle) fail to install on my system.

However the bigger issue is that I go through the WPMU Dev Dashboard, or downloading and uploading via FTP your plugins do not install.

After one-by-one installing your plugins this afternoon I go to plugins, click the button to select all, then click Network Activate and it stops with Fatal Errors etc.

I go through your Dashboard and click install on all of the plugins and it is the same thing.

I am attempting to get all of your addons installed so that I can play with them all and learn how to use them before opting on what is the best way to set up my site, and sites for potential clients.

Please help me as this is driving me mad, and I am going insane.

I live in Australia and its 2am - I have been working on this all day (since 10am - with breaks to make sure I don't smash my computer monitor).

Please if you can help me it would be greatly appreciated - considering the time I may take a while to respond but please try and get your products installed on my site - If you could get in and add them all and then click Network Activate you will see what I mean.

    Hello there @Brendon and welcome to the WPMUDEV Community!

    First of all your CoursePress Pro and Market Press (Course Press Bundle) fail to install on my system.

    I just logged-in on your site, went to the dashboard, and then installed the CoursePress plugin from there.
    It installed fine without any issues.

    After one-by-one installing your plugins this afternoon I go to plugins, click the button to select all, then click Network Activate and it stops with Fatal Errors etc.

    Please avoid bulk-activating plugins. Always activate them one by one.
    I just activated CoursePress, and then the bundled MarketPress plugin and did not get any fatal errors.

    Were you trying to install any more plugins?
    Please try installing them one by one and let me know how that goes.
    If you get any fatal errors, can you please tell us what exactly these errors say?

    Please advise,
    Ari.

    Will do,
    Sorry for being a pain (first time using the plugins provided from this site) - I suppose I was just being lazy with 140+ plugins (not to mention BuddyPress and WooCommerce Plugins) I was just lazy and clicked activate all - I will try one by one.

    Sorry for wasting your time :slight_smile:

    Installing these one by one, activating seems to be working - however I went to install user sync and it came up with:
    Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 176160768 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 491520 bytes) in /home/xxxx/public_html/xxxxxxx/wp-admin/plugins.php on line 371

    The issue now is when I go to the plugins page the error continues to come up - the only way to get rid of it (at the moment) is to rename the plugins folder to something_plugins but then that undoes the 50+ plugins that have already been installed?

    Any advice?

    Brendon
