I. Why do we need to block plugin installation on WordPress?

Why do we need to block plugin installation on WordPress? Common in it as some of the following reasons:

  • We are website designers and after designing the website, we need to hand it over to the customer for administration. Of course, we will block the permission to install the plugin to avoid the website having an incompatibility error.
  • We fear the website will be hijacked and install backup plugins to get the source code.
  • Afraid that the website is infected with malicious code and the malicious code automatically install the File Manager plugin, then we can completely delete the source code of our website.
  • Don’t want the website to upgrade the theme/plugin automatically.

II. Preventing plugin installation on WordPress

Go to the wp-config.php file in the WordPress website source code and insert the following configuration line:

AZDIGI Tutorial
define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', true );

After saving the file, you can check that your plugin settings page does not have a button to install a new plugin.

In case you want to update or install a new plugin, we just need to add // in front of the configuration line and then save it.
