When i am trying to install any plugin then getting error : The uploaded plugin archive does not contain a folder that corresponds to the plugin name.
I am trying to upload or install plugin in my website but getting error “The uploaded plugin archive does not contain a folder that corresponds to the plugin name.” i am using Open Journal Systems 188.8.131.52.
What application are you using?
For example, 184.108.40.206
What method of installing the plugin are you using. Please note that the preferred method is to install plugins via the plugin gallery. Using other methods may result in errors.Also, which plugin is it that is giving you this error?
No, i am trying to install by plugin section, but getting an error.
I am not clear what you mean by this:
i am trying to install by plugin section, but getting an error.
Can you clarify?
When I try to install the Plugin from Plugin Gallery, I get an error.
The uploaded plugin archive does not contain a folder that corresponds to the plugin name.
In that case, since you may have already tried uploading the plugin via uploading it, this typically means the name of the plugin folder inside the zipped folder needs to be renamed. Please see here:
I’d suggest checking your configuration file to see if the location to your “tar” command line tool is properly specified. If that doesn’t resolve the issue, check the contents of your PHP error log for more details.
