Can not install plug-in on local wordpress installation (2 posts)

    would appreciate it if any one could help. I can't seem to install plugins on my wordpress installtion....says, "Could not create directory". Can't download it or upload it after I drop .zip file in my plugins directory.

    I am running this locally using Xampp. I tried changing permissions on the plugins directory, another recommendation was to check the FS_METHOD in the config.php file. Couple other routes I tried.

    Any one have a suggestion?

    put the .zip on your desktop and try and install it, otherwise you can just extract the files from the zip and copy them into the plugins folder and then activate the plugin in the dashboard
