How do I get plugins from cyberduck to wordpress?
Cyberduck? You mean the browser?
Hmm.. What’s exactly your problem? You can’t use FTP or you don’t know how to get the plugin to your server or what? Do you know how to install the plugin?
I get the plugin downloaded, unzipped and uploaded to my FTP (cyberduck) but I can’t figure out how to get the file from the FTP client onto the “manage plugins” page so I can activate it.
I’m using a Mac, by the way.
You need to have following information before you can upload the plugin to your WordPress wp-content/plugins -folder:
1. Ftp-address of the server where you’re WordPress is hosted
2. Login name of your server ftp
.3 Password of your server ftp
I don’t know where you can put that info in Cyberduck but somewhere there it should be. Without that info you can’t login to your server with FTP.
When you have connected to your server with FTP upload the plugin to wp-content/plugins-folder. After that you should see the plugin on your “manage plugins” page and you can activate it.
If you can’t do it with Cyberduck, you can try normal FTP-software – like this one: http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/internet_utilities/classicftpformac.html
Hope this helps.
