Yesterday, I have changed the server from shared server to dedicated server for my blog i.e. FreeWebMentor.com. After changing the server, everything seems working fine, but when I was going to write a new article by using the WordPress admin panel, then I get the error which related to the Yost SEO plugin. Below is the complete error message what I get while going to add a new Posts or Pages.
