Hello,

Due to security reason we want as following:
Is it possible to disable/stop certain WordPress plugins from being installed such as WP-FileManager and WP-phpMyAdmin at the server level for a specific account or all accounts.

Sample WordPress File Manger plugin: File Manager
Sample WordPress phpMyAdmin plugin: WP phpMyAdmin

Thank you in advance.

Regards,
Tarak Nath

Hey there! Yes - if you are using WordPress Toolkit there is a "Plugin blocklist" function in WordPress Toolkit >> Settings. Here is a screenshot showing this area:

As noted in that image, the tool will keep plugins from being installed through WordPress Toolkit, and will disable them if it detects them through any automated scans.
