Install from Web tab is missing

Post by geoffmack » Thu Aug 04, 2016 9:01 pm

I have a brand new Joomla 3.6.1 site and the Install From Web tab is missing. (see screenshot) There is no bar at the top to click to install. There is no plugin to enable. There is no plugin for Install From Web.

I've cleared my cache. I've checked in all items. I don't have Akeeba (yet).

Where can I get the plugin?

Go to the options and set it to `Show Message`.
Issue with migrating? Include logs/joomla_update.php in your report!
Blank screen? Verify pagesource for HTML code (javascript error)
Installation failing on populating database? Install with set_time_limit(0)
Document your customizations!

First login to your joomla administrator. Go to Extensions -> Manage -> Discover Click Discover button (left top) After few seconds you should see 3 or 4 plugins with names starting with "Installer - Install from ..." Click checkbox for all or just for Installer - Install from Upload. Then click Install button at the top Now you have to enable them. Go to Extensions -> Plugins and there find all plugins with "Installer" name , next you should enable them (!) That's all. Now you can install Joomla! extensions again

Thanks dhuelsmann. But that wasn't the problem.

I did figure it out though. Click on options (the button in the upper right.) Then click the button that says "show message" for the Joomla! Extension Directory. Save settings.

I attached a screenshot for those that need to see it.

I have the same problem, the tab install from the web does not work and the other three have disappeared. I've written about this here:
