wordpress add new plugin option missing

If you have changed host or upgraded from old version to new version,

there is a chance that, you will not be able to “add new plugin” option in your self hosted wordpress admin dashboard.

after searching for more than 2 hours, i come across solution for it.

Solution is very simple,

Go to PhpMyAdmin,
Select your wordpress database,
go to wp_options table
and find `db_version` and replace its value with 8204

Now if you go wp-admin, it will ask you to upgrade your database

and voila! now you can see “add new plugin” option.
