WordPress problem

Username (e.g. epiz_XXX) or Website URL


Error Message

Installation failed: Abort class-pclzip.php : Missing zlib extensions

This appears whenever I install any plugin and wordpress do not update also.

This is a known system issue, As of now, the only way to INSTALL and UPDATE plugins and themes is doing it manually;

Hope this helps!


Even on uploading a plugin manually does not work!


Hello, you have to unzip, and upload any themes, plugins to your site manually by using a FTP client like FileZilla.

You should not upload the zip file because it will not work, file won’t be unzipped on the server due to missing extension.
Please have a look at this topic for more information:
