WordPress could not remove the old plugin, failed

11 Feb

I started off gettingĀ a white page after publishing any posts (following a WordPress update) and this seemed to be a plugin issue.

I then went to update all my plugins but encountered the error:

WordPress could not remove the old plugin.
Plugin update failed.

This turned out to be a pretty simple fix, change the directory permissions and give IUSR and IIS_IUSRS “Full Control”
