In using this site's search feature, I've discovered that this problem has been discussed ad nauseam before. Nevertheless, in all of the posts that I have read thus far, I haven't found a solution; so, please bear with me as I present the problem again, in the hope that someone will shed some light on this issue.
Now that I have learned how to enable the FTP server in Mac OS X Lion -- Why did you remove the GUI Apple? Security concerns? -- I have just discovered that I can't perform an automatic install of a zipped WordPress plug-in from the WordPress site, or even install a plug-in by uploading the zipped archive from my hard drive. In both cases, after it is unpacked, I keep getting the error "incompatible archive".
Unpacking the package…
Installing the plugin…
Plugin install failed.
This last time that I tried, I watched the "wp-content" folder.
The archive was indeed uploaded to the "uploads" folder.
The archive was then unzipped in the "upgrade" folder.
But then everything stops, and I get the above "Incompatible Archive." message.
Does anyone have any idea why this is occurring?
More importantly, does anyone know how I can fix it?
Thanks so much!
