    Unfortunately I didn't create create mu-plugins folder during installtion and I left plugins folder as it is.Now for some plugins I am getting the message like :

    It is currently located in /home/.../public_html/..../wp-content/plugins/multisite-user-management. Please move it to /wp-content/mu-plugins/ for this plugin to work correctly.

    Could you please help me to solve this problem?

    Thank you !

    Your plugin is telling you to move it into the mu-plugins folder. In other words, create a folder named 'mu-plugins' under the /wp-content/ directory if it doesn't already exist. Then cut your plugin from the /plugins/ folder, and paste it into your /mu-plugins/ folder.

    Ok ! I transferred that to the mu-plugins folder.It is working well.I got an error a two days ago when I moved other plugin from "plugins" folder to "mu-plugins"folder .

    But how can I set it as default plugins site rather than old "plugins" ?

    Could you please help me with this?

    As I moved the plugin to mu-plugins folder .I am getting this error now :

    The plugin multisite-user-management/ms-user-management.php has been deactivated due to an error: Plugin file does not exist.

    Certain plugins are designed to be activated network-wide. These plugins are nicknamed "multi-user plugins" or "must-use plugins", and so you'll place these ones in the /mu-plugins/ folder. These plugins get activated automatically.

    Most other plugins are regular plugins that can be manually activated on a per-blog basis (and in some cases you can also activate them network-wide via the plugins manager). For these plugins, you put them in the /plugins/ folder.

    Make sure to always read the README files/instructions of each plugin so that you know where to put them.

    As for your second error, you can ignore that. WordPress just deactivated the former plugin under /plugins/ and reactivated it under /mu-plugins/.
