How do I install new wordpress plugin

Most of us using web installer to update the wordpress version and installing plugins, theme and more. Recently I hit by a plugin install crashed my website’s admin area. It’s showing empty pages while accessing admin url.

So before install/upgrading anyting related to wordpress highly recomend to backup your files and database to minimize the downtime and your tension rate. Once after the hitting I stopped to using web-installer from untrusted plugin resource.

Here are the step will help you to this manually without any risk factor.

All WordPress Plugins cab be install the same way.

1. Download the latest version of the WordPress Plugin to your computer.
2. With an FTP program, access your site’s server.
3. Upload (copy) the Plugin file(s) or folder to the /wp-content/plugins folder.
4. In your WordPress Administration Panels, click on Plugins from the menu at the top.
5. You should see your new Plugin listed. If not, with your FTP program, check the folder to see if it is installed. If it isn’t, upload the file(s) again. If it is, delete the files and upload them again.
6. To turn the WordPress Plugin on, click Activate on the far right side of the list.
7. Check your Administration Panels or WordPress blog to see if the Plugin is working.
