Error installing QuickSubmit Plugin

Pleaese i have tried to install the quick submit plugin from the plugin gallery i get the pop-up message “the tar command is not available… please configure it in your…” please help

Hi @David_Oguche

Did you try uploading quickSubmit plugin manually in the plugins directory ?

Or try this steps :

  1. Download quickSubmit release here
  2. Upload to plugins > importexport
  3. Extract
  4. Go to Plugin Gallery
  5. Activate the plugin


I tried it but i kept getting pop up notice " tar command is not available please configure it in your config.ini.php"
