To be able to install the plugin via the FTP server, the downloaded zip file must first be unpacked.

Do you use MacOS? Then you can simply double click on the zip file, after which it will be automatically unpacked. Do you use Windows? Then you can use a program like WinRAR to extract the zip file.

In this article the ' for WooCommerce' plugin is used as an example. The required actions are identical for other plugins.


  1. Login to your FTP server and go to /wp-content/plugins/
  2. Drag the extracted folder - in this example 'woosa-bol' - to the plugins folder on your FTP server
  3. Is the plugin fully uploaded to your FTP server? Then go to the backend of your WordPress website and click on Plugins
  4. Find the plugin that you have just installed - in this example ' for WooCommerce' - and click on Activate


Have you installed and activated the plugin? Then you can start with the configuration of the plugin.
