    I'm getting this message when I click on the plug-ins tab:
    Couldn't open plugins directory or there are no plugins available.
    Anyone know why?

    Check the permissions on your wp-content/ and wp-content/plugins/ directories, perhaps?

    What should the permissions be?

    I believe it should be 755.

    Both need to be readable and executable by whatever userid your web server runs as; or readable and executable to everyone.
    ls -lh from within your WordPress directory. Look for the line for wp-content:
    drwxr-xr-x 3 skippy skippy 4.0k May 26 10:38 wp-content
    ls -lh wp-content
    drwxr-xr-x 2 skippy skippy 4.0k May 26 10:38 plugins
    To make it readable and executable to everyone, try this:
    chmod -R o+rx-w wp-content

    755 is correct, if your familiar with changing privileges that way. Skippy's command should work just fine for you too.
