!This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.


Install and uninstall plugins from your admin interface without uploading the plugins via FTP and automatically check for plugin updates.

IMPORTANT: This plugin DOES NOT work on a windows server, as there are no commandline tools to unpack archives, but it works great when connecting from windows to a linux/unix server.

PREREQUISITES: Make sure your server has the following tools installed and readily available within the search path: "tar", "gzip" and "unzip". Also, set your wp-content/plugins directory to world-writeable (chmod -R 777 plugins) or at least writeable to your httpd user.

Carefully follow the following steps as it is probably the last time you will ever do this:

  1. Upload the plugin package to your wp-content/plugins directory
  2. Unzip the package (unzip pluginst.zip)
  3. Go to your "plugins" administration page and activate the PlugInstaller plugin

Requires: 2.0.2 or higher
