- Upload the plugin files to the

- After activating the plugin it will be copied to the
/wp-content/mu-plugins/must-use-plugin-handledirectory. You can delete the plugin now through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress

I want to add another user as an authorised user. How can I do that?
You can add additional administrators to the authorised admins, but beware! Every authorised user can control all must use plugins and authorised administrators. Be sure, that you can trust them with this amount of power and responsability.
One of the plugins depends on another plugin. Both are installed and set as must use, but they don’t work anymore. What went wrong?
Most likely they are being loaded in the wrong order. You can specify the load order with drag and drop through the ‘Must use plugins’ screen
How can I deinstall the plugin
You have to delete it manually through the filesystem for now. An option to delete it through the backend will be added in the future.
