I am trying to install some additional plugins to Omeka. I downloaded them to my computer and then uploaded them to my Dreamhost site using their WebFTP client, which has an "archives" option. "Archives entered here will be decompressed, and the files inside will be transferred to the FTP server," Dreamhost promises.
It seemed to work, and when I go back into my Omeka site I see the plugins ready to install. But when I click the green Install button I get an error message. In the case of the Dropbox plugin I see:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function get_plugin_ini() in /home/larrycebula/larrycebula.com/omeka/plugins/Dropbox/plugin.php on line 10"
