Plugins not showing up in the ‘Plugin’ section

    Hello,
    I installed 3 plugins and out of the three only 1 showed up for me to activate in the ‘Plugin’ section on admin panel.

    Any suggestions why it’s not showing up in the list of plugins?

    Sometimes a plugin will be in a folder within a folder, and you have to figure out the right method of loading it into the WordPress plugins folder. Some plugins use the folder within a folder but also include a pointer in the first folder that points to the second folder. Others expect you to just upload the second folder so it’s the only one in the WordPress hierarchy. You’ll have to use your FTP client to inspect the folder hierarchy.

    Same problem.

    Only Akismet and Hello Dolly plugins are shown.

    Problem solved. WordPress searchs plugins by default in /usr/share/wordpress/wp-content/plugins. :-/
    Silly IMHO.
