Plugins not installing (2.0.6)

After updating to 2.0.6 I can’t install plugins anymore. I can upload them from /wp-admin/plugin-install.php, but interface is not showing 'plugin installed/activate screen afterwards. ‘VBoxHeadless’ process is 100% until I cancel the upload and move away from the install screen. Uploaded plugins (zip) are found in Media.

PHP: 5.5.38

Any suggestions?


Is this macOS Sierra?

If so, is “Faster Docker Volumes” enabled under Preferences » Advanced?

Hi Clay,

Correct, on OS Sierra 10.12.5. Faster Dockers Volumes is off.

New problem trying to install a plugin:

Hi @JJW,

Sorry for the trouble!

Does this issue persist if you switch the web server to nginx?
