Cant install any plugin


Every plugin i try to instal through the plugin gallery i get the error “The uploaded plugin archive does not contain a folder that corresponds to the plugin name”
Could someone please tell me what i’m doing wrong?


Hey @cembra,

This is a guess but do you have your tar and zip paths correctly configured in your file?


Hi @jnugent, thanks for your reply :slight_smile:
To answer your guess… I dont know…
What should be in that file to have the correct configuration?


Hey @cembra

You should talk to a systems administrator. The defaults for those options are reasonable, but they might be different in your case. Also, there may be permissions issues on your plugins/ directory, e.g. perhaps your webserver is running as a user who cannot write to that directory or its sub directories.


I’ve discoverd the problem:
As the site should not be online while in development and tests, i’ve protected the public html folder with a password.
Without it, it works fine.

Thanks again @jnugent
