Install and uninstall plugins from your admin interface without uploading the plugins via FTP and automatically check for plugin updates.
To install a new plugin package go to "Plugins" in your administration interface. You can either enter a download URL for a plugin (i.e. a download URL form the wordpress.org plugins repository) or select a file from your local computer to be updated. I recommend to install plugins directly from online sources, as this uses most of the advanced features of PlugInstaller, like the automatic update checking for plugins.
You may activate and deactivate plugins by selecting the appropriate links from the plugin management page. If you want to view the readme file of a plugin, click the "View Readme" link. To display more information on a plugin, click the "+" sign directly before the plugin's name.
To uninstall a plugin, you will first have to deactivate it. Then, select "uninstall" from the list of inactive plugins.
If you want to check your installed plugins for newer versions (currently only works with those plugins hosted on wordpress.org), hit the "Check for updated plugins" button below the list of active plugins. Be warned that this might take a while, as checking for updates heavily relies on the wordpress.org svn server which may be slow at times.
To update a plugin that shows the yellow "update" flag, just click on that flag. PlugInstaller will automatically install the update for this plugin. Don't forget to reactivate the plugin after you have updated it!
