I know that’s a weird title. But the site was down last nite and this morn, and the Host (iPower) blamed it on a missing file in GP premium.
“I could see that activation.php file for plugin ‘gp-premium’ is missing.”
So I downloaded the GP plugin folder, then deleted said folder, and the site was live again. Im using “Exhibit” if that matters.
Strangely, I tried to replicate the issue by re-uploading the same folder I downloaded, and the site remained live. Thought you’d like to know.
Site is activated in my online acct, and my buy ID is: #153013. I haven’t edited this site or logged into WP in many weeks. Though I do use http://infinitewp.com/ to do semi-auto updates.
The site down message displayed was generic, below.

That’s very strange. It could have been that using IWP that when you updated the plugin, not all of the files were extracted to the server.
It’s always a good idea to test each site when using a multi site updater like that.
I used to have a WordPress maintenance company where I used that plugin. I shut it down because it just wasn’t reliable enough and I didn’t want to break a bunch of websites all the time.March 29, 2016 at 11:20 am #182676albabes
Thanks for the answer Tom, and thanks for the advice on Iwp plugin.
The only reason I asked you was I assumed that there was an update to Gp premium, but its 2 months old, so its strange that the Iwp plugin would even touch Gp premium?
