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.
