Errors While Installing Recommended Plugin?
99% of errors when installing recommended plugin are due to strict server permissions not allowing the plugin to be saved in your wp-content/plugins/ folder.
If you're unable to resolve the permission issues with your hosting provider support, you can still install all necessary plugins manually from the WordPress repository.
