Koha's Plugin System allows for you to add additional tools and reports to Koha that are specific to your library. Plugins are installed by uploading KPZ ( Koha Plugin Zip ) packages. A KPZ file is just a zip file containing the perl files, template files, and any other files necessary to make the plugin work.
The plugin system needs to be turned on by a system administrator.
To set up the Koha plugin system you must first make some changes to your install.
Create the directory /var/lib/koha/plugins
Add the lines <pluginsdir>/var/lib/koha/plugins</pluginsdir> <enable_plugins>1</enable_plugins>" to your koha-conf.xml file
Add the line Alias /plugin/ "/var/lib/koha/plugins/" to your koha-httpd.conf file
Restart your webserver
Once set up is complete you will need to alter your UseKohaPlugins system preference to be able to see a Plugins option under the More menu on your toolbar. On the Tools page you will see the Tools Plugins and on the Reports page you will see the Reports Plugins.
