Well, that was useful.
What I meant to type was:
plugins directory not available in admin interface
The directory is there. The plugin files are there. I've set the permissions to 777 just to be sure. No joy. I get the "Couldn't open plugins directory or there are no plugins available" message.
This was mentioned in another post, but the author was able to see a few plugins in the interface, but not others. I don't see any. Any ideas?
Where are your plugins installed? As in full URL to one of your plugin files, for instance.
If I try to access that file directly -- which shouldn't be allowed by WordPress, but should be allowed by the web server -- I get a 403 forbidden error. What are the permissions of the "adhesive.php" file? Everyone, or at least the web server process which is likely either "everyone" or your user id depending on your hosting provider, needs to have read access for it to work.
Okay, thanks! It's working now.
I went back up in the directory structure and set /wordpress to 775, then /wp-content to 775, then /plugins to 775, then the plugin files to 666.
The admin interface now has access.
