how to install a confluence plugin by copying jar file?


I am writing a script of automatic confluence installation. I have found out how to install it with unattended mode.


Base on this, I was wondering that if it is possible to encapsulate some plugins by writing some script. Like copying jar file to certain place?


Many thanks.

You can drop add-ons into the plugins directory and restart Confluence, but there are some add-ons that don't work if you do it that way.

I would strongly recommend not doing this though, you should use the API to install add-ons (via the GUI)
