How do I add plugins to wordpress?
I have another wordpress blog hosted elsewhere and it is easy to do.
However, I don’t think I have the proper info or access.

This is what I see in wordpress admin - :

You’re either using DreamHost Apps (free service) or an Easy One-Click install. Neither lets you modify the installation, as it’s shared among multiple users. An Advanced One-Click or do-it-yourself installation puts the software in your own home directory where you can add plugins and themes.

Short version: You can’t with your current setup.
