- Some unzipping archive tool (WinRAR, 7zip, Jzip, etc.) as 99% of the uploads are archived to lessen the size and keep files in one piece.
- FTP or cPanel (as it is widely used) to your server, or if you are doing it locally then you can skip this step.
- A bit of knowledge about WordPress.
- Go to your root folder of the WordPress installation.
- Unzip the plugin files.
- Connect to your site’s server using FTP.
- Navigate to the /wp-content/plugins directory.
- Upload the plugin folder to the /wp-content/plugins directory on your web server.
- Go to the Dashboard’s Plugins page and you see the new plugin listed. If a mistake is made, delete all the newly uploaded files and repeat the procedure again.
- Some plugins such as Elementor Pro requires from users to first install the free version of the plugin and afterward to install a pro version.
- The process is the same as explained above, just you have to do it two times from the provided files (first move the free version and install, afterward a pro version).
