Some premium, large or custom WordPress plugins may require you to install them through FTP.

  • Connect to your hosting with FTP.
  • Navigate to the directory containing your WordPress site.
  • Upload your plugin to the /wp-content/plugins directory.
  • If your plugin is zipped, you will need to unzip it (This can be done via the cPanel File Manager, using ‘Extract’ to decompress the files)
  • Your plugin should now display on the Plugins page within your WordPress Dashboard.
