Hi there and welcome to WordPress Trac!

This place is for reporting bugs and enhancements in WordPress core. For support requests please use the official support forums over at

To me it sounds like you have DISALLOW_FILE_MODS defined in wp-config.php. That will disable the file editor and the option to install plugins. So please check that before opening a topic in the forums.
