badly formed or empty plugin code

if i get this error – “badly formed or empty plugin code” – where the problem probably could be?

Textpattern version: 4.8.8 (a5969b336c096d872a7ecab9ee25914b)
PHP version: 5.6.40-pl13-zoneos

Re: badly formed or empty plugin code

IIRC, there is a bug in 4.8.8 blocking .zip plugins installation. You’ll have, I’m afraid, either find a .txt copy or upload the uncompressed plugin folder to textpattern/pugins/ directory and install from disk. Sorry for that.

Weird. What was the plugin, out of curiosity? Wasn’t upload corrupt in some way?

Re: badly formed or empty plugin code

This answer would probably have fixed it for you on 4.8.8. I know that it did for me.
