Support » Fixing WordPress » WP not finding Plugins directory?

  • I’ve been getting a flood of comment spam today, and trying my best to keep up with it; and I wanted to install the Comment Killer plugin. I uploaded it to my wp-content/plugins directory, but when I go to Plugins in my WP admin screen, it says that it “Couldn’t open plugins directory or there are no plugins available.” What can I do to fix this?

  • Have you checked the chmod of the directory? Having the incorrect or too restrictive chmod, I think, can cause what you described.

    I am having this same problem. Please let me know if you can fix it. I tried playing with my permission settings but this doesn’t seem to help.

    What are your file permissions on wp-content and on plugins ?

    Aha! Fixed it. I had my permission level for content set to 6, not 7. Thanks for pointing out that folder for me 🙂
