Why OJS need Tar commands

Hello I am new to OJS, I need to know Why OJS need tar commands to install the plugins.

Hi @Harish2021,

The plugins are compressed in the tar format, that is why it is required. The OJS requires tar to b eable to uncompress the plugin.

Hi all,

Starting with OJS 3.4, plugin installation will no longer require the external tar tool.
