  • Upload Package File - if you have downloaded the extension archive to your computer, you can browse to it and then install it by clicking Upload & Install
  • Install from Directory - to install an extension from a directory, you need to extract the extension's archive and then upload its contents to a new folder on your web hosting account; then type the absolute path to the new folderin the field and click Install
  • Install from URL - to install an extension directly from a link on the web, simply type the link to the extension's file, e.g., and click Install
