On Saturday, Jan 20, one of my sites started throwing a 500 error on the wordpress admin.

I contacted Rochen and asked them to look at the live logs.

They reported:

The error being displayed is listed as : [20-Jan-2018 23:19:50 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Class 'Akeeba\Engine\Base\BaseObject' not found in /home/experience1/public_html/wp-content/plugins/akeebabackupwp/helpers/Platform/Wordpress/Finalization/TestExtract.php on line 26

I manually disabled the extension by renaming the folder then re-installed Akeeba Pro for WP and we are back to normal.

My question is: What would have caused this?

Custom Fields

WordPress version (in x.y.z format) 4.9.2

sometimes during the installation phase some files are not entirely copied.
Usually installing it again fixes the problem. If this was just a one-time issue, there's nothing to worry about.
