WAMP for local WP install

Installed WAMP to work on WP site locally. Tried to search for plugins via local WP admin but it’s giving an error message:

An unknown error occurred.

Tried installing them to plugins folder locally, but admin won’t recognize them even after refreshing and logging out and back in. Any ideas how to fix this?

Figured this out. Thanks!

what is solution.
I am facing similar problem.


I am so sorry. I don’t remember. I should have written it here when I said I solved the problem.

Make sure you are uploading a zip file via the WP Plugin upload feature. If I think of anything else, I’ll post it.
