Support » Fixing WordPress » not allowed to install plugins on my site

  • Somehow I am not allowed to intall plugins. When I go to https://www.turnverenigingkunst.nl/wp-admin/plugin-install.php I get the notification: Sorry, you are not allowed to install plugins on this site. I am the admin and have all rights, yet somehow not the right to install plugins… The plugin option is also not shown at the dashboard. The website is from our (dutch) student gymnastics organisation and the board changes every year, therefore I am not sure how long this problem is existing.
    I do know some plugins are installed and used, so somewhere in the past it was possible.

    (I am also planning on doing a full makeover for the website, but I don’t believe a new theme will give me the rights to install plugins.)

    I would love to hear if someone knows how to solve this problem, I have not yet found the answer by using Google.

  • Hi @kunstbestuur

    Add this code in your wp-config.php and try again, hope this will be helpful

    define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', false);
    define('DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', false);

    Thanks

    Hi @kunstbestuur !

    In case the suggestion solution above didn’t work, you’ll find more information about potential causes of the issue you’re facing (an issue with the code, website memory. plugin etc.) and solutions here.

    Hope this helps!
