Dear professionals,

After installing Koha latest version 18.11.05 we have faced a problem in enabling plugins. Its shows an error message as follows "Cannot unpack file to the plugins directory.
Please verify that the Apache user can write to the plugins directory.

To set up the Koha plugin system you must first make some changes to your install.

  • Change <enable_plugins>0<enable_plugins> to <enable_plugins>1</enable_plugins> in your koha-conf.xml file
  • Confirm that the path to <pluginsdir> exists, is correct, and is writable by the web server
  • Restart your webserver
  • Restart memcached if you are using it
  • modify the web server configuration (apache2) site-enable file and add the following line on line number 10 or above
ScriptAlias / "/var/lib/koha/mykoha/plugins/Koha/Plugin/Com/ByWaterSolutions/CoverFlow/" 
Alias /plugin "/var/lib/koha/mykoha/plugins"
# The stanza below is needed for Apache 2.4+
<Directory /var/lib/koha/mykoha/plugins>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Require all granted
