    Every time I try to install an add-on I get this message...


    file_exists(): Unable to find the wrapper "sftp" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP?

    XenForo_Application::handlePhpError()
    file_exists() in XenForo/Model/AddOn.php at line 153
    XenForo_Model_AddOn->installAddOnXmlFromFile() in XenForo/ControllerAdmin/AddOn.php at line 187
    XenForo_ControllerAdmin_AddOn->actionInstall() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 347
    XenForo_FrontController->dispatch() in XenForo/FrontController.php at line 134
    XenForo_FrontController->run() in /var/www/community/forum/admin.php at line 13

    I was hoping some one could point me in the right direction to fix this issue. There are a bunch of add-ons that I really want to install, but this is obviously preventing me from the joy I desire. Any assistance will be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    It sounds like you're entering a URL to an add-on XML file and it actually starts with "sftp". You should either be uploading the XML or pointing to a local file.
