I am trying to install an extension for my Magento store. My version of is Magento ver. 2.1.15. Now when i install the extension, it is not visible at Stores->Configuration->Advanced->Advanced

This is the steps i followed to install the extension

 1.Extracted my extension folder into my root            
 2.php bin/magento setup:upgrade
 3.php bin/magento setup:di:compile
 4.php bin/magento cache:clean

But i still cannot find the extension in my store. What could be causing this as i am not seeing any error anywhere ?

PS: I just started working on Magento.

  1. First of all : check if your module has correctly been installed

    Run : php bin/magento module:status and check if your module is present in List of enabled modules:

  2. According to your xml, your module configuration, will be present in :

    Admin > Stores > Configuration > GlobalSms

    and not in :


Something like this :

Stores > Configuration >
                       |__ GlobalSms
                               |__ Basic Configuration
                                          |__ Basic Configuration Setting API Account
                                                     |__ Enter GlobalSms Username
                                                     |__ Enter GlobalSms Password

About the installation, you can install extensions by : 1. Adding files to your project via FTP, or 2. via Composer.

  • I check and i am not finding my modules in the list of enabled modules. I installed the extention by just git cloning the folder into my root (magento) – Jonathan Feud Nov 11 '18 at 0:48
  • run php bin/magento setup:upgrade then php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f then php bin/magento c:c – PЯINCƏ Nov 11 '18 at 16:08

At first check location of your module it should be at app/code location if you are not installing without composer. After that just just run php bin/magento module:enable VendorName_ModuleName and flush the cache.

Let me know if amy more help needed.

  • I git cloned the module into app/code/Magento and followed the steps in [github.com/aref-lazrek/Sms-Global-Notification-for-Magento-2] but i am still not seeing the extension in my configuration to enable it – Jonathan Feud Nov 11 '18 at 10:30
  • so it means your module location is app/code/Magento/VendorName/ModuleName. If it so then placed it under app/code directly like app/code/VendotName/ModuleName – Ramkishan Suthar Nov 11 '18 at 13:08
