I tired of searching in google and also in MSE but didn't find the exact way of installing magento extensions and themes MANUALLY as I use LINUX I cannot able to install through Magento Connect manager so please someone help me with this and also Iam getting error 503.
Ok lets solve this.
Step 1 :search for required extension/Theme and get the extension key and copy it.
Step 2:Now paste it in here to download
Step 3:Copy the folders and paste them into your Magento root folder but dont forget to merge them.
your theme/extension is now ready to use hope this helps
Just copy the extesion files over your magento instance and make sure the folder names overlap.
app goes over magento
skin and so on.
Nothing should be overwritten. If it is, then something is wrong with the extension.
When you are done clear the cache.
But please explain more on what do you mean by "as I use LINUX I cannot able to install through Magento Connect ". Magento connect should work independent of the OS.
Open the admin panel, go to System --> Cache Management and Disable all the cache.
Get the extension key of your selected Magento theme or extension from Magento Connect manager.
Go to System -> Magento Connect -> Magento Connect Manager and paste the Key of your theme or extension. Now just install it.
Searchfor the extension that you want to Install
Downloadthe Extension files.
- Open the
zip/tarfile and make sure all the folders in the extension overlap to your magento root directory folders.
- Connect to your Host using FTP Client and
copythe zip/tar file in the root directory of Magento.
- Connect to your Host using ssh and
extractthe extension zip/tar file.
$ tar -xvzf extension.tar.gz
Now delete the
var/cache folder through ftp or ssh.
Revisit your url and the extension will be successfully installed.
