Can't Upload Plugin to Coppermine
« on: July 14, 2012, 12:52:01 am »

I'm trying to install reCaptcha in Coppermine 1.5.  I have downloaded the .zip file to my computer, I select it in Coppermine's plugin manager,  and then when I click the upload button, nothing happens. 

I'm getting registration spam.  I really need reCaptcha.

Can anyone help?

This is the more elegant and easier method - you just use the upload control on the plugin manager page and the zip file you uploaded gets extracted from the archive and stored on the server within the proper folder. There are two pre-requisites though:
  • PHP running on your webserver needs zip support - not all webservers have zip support enabled.
  • the script needs write permissions within the plugins folder.
If you fail to fullfil those two pre-requisites, this simple method (upload interface) won't work for you (i.e. you will get error messages when trying, or the plugin will even simply fail to work without an error message at all). If this is the case for you, it's recommended not to mess with server setup (unless you're an expert and the server is yours to administer), but just to use the second upload method described below.

Try method #2
