This site explains how you can install Magenerds extensions into your Magento® 2 store. We recommend that you install every new extension on a test or staging environment first before you install it on a production system. We also recommend that you do a backup of the Magento® 2 file system as well as the Magento® 2 database before installing a new extension.
Installation over Marketplace
As Magenerds extensions are offered in the official Magento® Marketplace you can directly install them via the Magento® 2 backend. Magento® did a great job simplifying this process, they also provided a really good documentation. Please read the official documentation for installing extensions over the marketplace.
Installation via file transer
You need at least some sort of access to your Magento® 2 server, may it be (S)FTP or SSH. If you downloaded the extension directly from our site you can transfer it to your Magento® 2 server.
- Download the extension and unzip it
- Access your Magento® 2 server
Enter the following commands:
cd <Magento install dir>/app/code mkdir -p Magenerds/<ModuleName>
<Magento install dir>is the directory where your Magento® runs and
<ModuleName>is the name of the module (you can find out the exact module name in the
registration.phpof the unziped module folder you downloaded).
- Copy the content of the unziped folder (not the folder itself) into
<Magento install dir>/app/code/Magenerds/<ModuleName>/.
- Run the following in the Magento® install directory:
- Delete the cache in the backend
