For Woo Commerce (WordPress)

There are three ways to install plugins:

  1. Installing a plugin from the WordPress Plugin Directory. This is the easiest method, but only works for plugins that are available in the Directory.
  2. Uploading a plugin .zip file. This is the easiest method for installing plugins purchased from a marketplace or developer website.
  3. Manually installing via FTP. This is the most complicated method, requiring some knowledge of FTP. It’s typically done when, for whatever reason, you’re unable to use the other two methods.

Let’s take a look at each method in more detail.

Plugins from the Directory

Good news: Your WordPress installation is directly connected to the WordPress Plugin Directory, so you can install plugins without needing to leave WordPress.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. In the sidebar, go to Plugins.
  2. At the top of the screen, click Add New.
  3. Enter the name of the plugin you’re looking for.
  4. Click on the plugin you’d like to install.
  5. In the pop-up window, review the details. (Ask yourself, “Is this the right plugin?”)
  6. Click Install Now.
  7. When the installation completes, click Activate.

That’s it! You’ve installed and activated your plugin.

Upload a plugin .zip file

If you purchased a plugin from a marketplace or a developer website, you’ve likely been given a .zip file. To install the plugin, you’ll need to upload the .zip file into WordPress.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. In the sidebar, go to Plugins.
  2. At the top of the screen, click Add New.
  3. At the top of the screen, click Upload Plugin.
  4. On the Upload Plugin screen, you have two options:
    — Click Browse. Find and select the plugin .zip file.
    — Drag and drop the .zip file onto the Upload Plugin screen. (Note: Only works if your browser supports it!)
  5. Click Install Now.
  6. When the installation completes, click Activate.

Boom! You’ve uploaded your plugin .zip file to WordPress.

Manual installation via FTP

This is most technical process, and requires knowledge of using FTP.  You’ll be uploading the entire plugin folder directly to your WordPress installation.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. Open the plugin .zip file.
  2. Extract the included plugin folder to a location on your computer.
  3. Using FTP, connect to your webserver.
  4. Navigate to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation.
  5. Upload the plugin folder from your computer to the /wp-content/plugins/directory.
  6. In WordPress, go to Plugins in the sidebar.
  7. The just-uploaded plugin should appear in the list. Click Activate beneath its name.

Great! You’ve just manually installed a WordPress plugin via FTP.
