After spending a day searching and experimenting, I cannot get any plugins to activate. I have removed and reuploaded them (ASCII) and have checked permissions. I am running on FreeBSD 4.4 with Apache/2.0.50 (FreeBSD) mod_perl/1.99_14 Perl/v5.8.4 PHP/4.3.8 as my configuration.
I cannot even get HelloDolly to work. When you click on the activate function. WP replies that it is activated. But nothing happens. It does not show the option to deactivate and in one plugin, a mysql table is to be created upon activation and that does not occur.
Is there some setting that I am overlooking or a permission that is incorrect? All other aspects of WP work great.
