I need to install module pf magento 2 in hosting. I'm trying to connect host with port 21 using putty but not success. I need one other way, please help me.


I think system() function will be your friend, if you don't have permission of CLI.

To use this function , just simple create new file in your root server(Let's call it custom.php), then write below code in this file

system('php bin/magento cache:status'); // you can change it to your command

And run this script with http://your base url/custom.php

It will gives you resulted output.

You have also second option if you run magento2 command without CLI , but it doesn't gives you any message(I mean success or fail), but you can use if you don't have any option.

For that you have to create a new file(Let's call it custom1.php), and write below code in your file.


use Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap;

require __DIR__ . '/app/bootstrap.php';

$bootstrap = Bootstrap::create(BP, $_SERVER);

$obj = $bootstrap->getObjectManager();

$state = $obj->get('Magento\Framework\App\State');
$k[1]='cache:status'; // write your proper command like setup:upgrade,cache:enable etc...
try {
    $handler = new \Magento\Framework\App\ErrorHandler();
    set_error_handler([$handler, 'handler']);
    $application = new Magento\Framework\Console\Cli('Magento CLI');
} catch (\Exception $e) {
    while ($e) {
        echo $e->getMessage();
        echo $e->getTraceAsString();
        echo "\n\n";
        $e = $e->getPrevious();

And run this script with http://your base url/custom1.php

I know this is very dirty way, but you can use if you want.

You can install Magento 2 extension manually

  1. Download the extension
  2. Unzip the file in a temporary directory
  3. Upload it to your Magento installation root directory
  4. Disable the cache under System­ > Cache Management

Edit app/etc/config.php file and three line code:

‘Ves_All’ => 1,
‘Ves_Megamenu’ => 1,
‘Ves_Setup’ => 1,
  1. Now Disable the cache under System > Cache Management
  2. After opening Stores ­> Configuration­ > Advanced­ > Advanced, the module will be shown in the admin panel.
