Plugin not found in WP once uploaded in Filezilla


I have downloaded the zip file for the WP Dashboard plugin – however once extracted and uploaded with filezilla It doesn’t appear on the WP plugin screen.I’ve done it exactly the same as my others in the plugin folder with 777 permissions – but still nothing?

    Hello Kelsie Smith,

    I hope you are well today.

    When you extracted the file, was the final folder name wpmudev-updates? It should be. You can actually upload the entire zip file directly to the WordPress Plugin Installer at Admin -> Plugins -> Add New -> Upload Plugin. This is the simplest way to go about it as it ensures the proper folder structure and permissions.

    The final path/folder of WPMU DEV Dashboard should be ./wp-content/plugins/wpmudev-updates/

    I hope this clarifies a bit. Let us know if you have any further questions. We’ll be happy to help!

    Best regards,

    James Morris
