Issue with WP 2.9 and plugins activation

  • Author

    My first installation, with a WP 2.9, i should have try for a former release,

    Every plugin that i want to upload, i got a internal server 500 error.

    The plugin get uploaded but not unpacked.

    So i did it myself directly into the plugin folder, right permission on everything.

    Checked on WP admin plugin board and my plugin appears.

    I tried to activate it, i got another and constant error 500 from the server.

    What is wrong? Some plugin just fail later in the process, activated, but no more WP-Admin access, so i needed to rename the folder via ftp to de-activate it.
    Some plugin can be activated, but when trying to access there features, settings, there is something further that goes simply wrong.

    I just cannot figure out if it is a server requirements that is not met or it is the compatibility of these plugins with the WP 2.9?

    People are saying that these plugins works for most of them with the 2.9.

    Does somebody have some answer on this subject? you will be welcome.

    I am trying to figure out the best way of installing an “Infusion4WP” plugin on my wordpress blog.

    The instruction video shows how the plugin should be added, but they seem to have a sidebar menu category “Plugins” that I don’t have.

    There must be some way of installing this menu category, but I have not been ablee to figure it out.

    Can anyone help me, I am new to this and completely lost.
