the installation of an extension (formerly called plugin) with Python was initiated from the OCS server in version 2.6 Release Candidate stage (therefore currently not for production purposes).

If this is the case for you, thank you for this feedback to further improve our product.

The latest stable version of the OCS server is 2.5.

This depends on the fact that the install script (install_plugin.py) looks for "map.pm", but all plugins contain "Map.pm" under the APACHE directory.

Since it's case sensitive, the installation fails.

In my case I tried to install officepack: As a workaround I substituted all occurences of map.pm inside the python script (install_plugin.py) with Map.pm and renamed the following:

- Extension directory from officepack to Officepack

- officepack.conf to Officepack.conf inside [extension]/APACHE.

This way the installation concludes succesfully.
