[resolved] Plugins: add button and updates not showing up (14 posts)

    When I'm in network admin and go to the plugins, I don't see the add button and none of the plugins show that an update is available (even when I know there is one).

  2. Are you 100% sure you're in /wp-admin/network/plugins.php?

    Yes I'm 100% sure.

  4. Odds are it's a plugin conflict, then. Go in and rename the plugins folder to plugins-old.

    I renamed the plugins folder to plugins-old.

    No change.

  6. Try mu-plugins.

    If you've got access to that menu, you're the super admin and everything should be fine. When it's not, you go back to plugins, themes, and what did you change?

    I do have one plugin that is required to be in the mu-plugins folder and I can see it on the plugins page but I don't see a menu. I renamed the mu-plugins folder to mu-plugins-old.

    I've included a screenshot below so you can see what I'm seeing.

  8. Huh... I cannot for the life of me recreate that.

  9. Oh! Jan is handy!

    Go to /wp-admin/network/plugin-install.php

    What do you see?

  10. visit /wp-admin/network/plugin-install.php directly. what happens?

    I get the following text on the screen:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.

    Try searching for the following in your wp-config.php file:
    define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', true );

    If it's there, remove it or comment it out.

    Try searching for the following in your wp-config.php file:
    define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', true );

    I removed it and that did the trick.

    The update button and updates are showing up now. (along with other stuff as well)

    Thank You!

    Appreciate everyone's help on getting this resolved.
