Support » Installing WordPress » New and Need Help on installing Plugin

  • I am a newbie. I am running a blog a and I have seen new and plugins I would like to upload. I can get a dialog box that lets me download the plugin to my PC, but I don’t know how to FTP or upload it to Word Press. I have researched the documentation, but can’t find anything to help. I went and got FileZilla but I am lost in there too.

    Any assistance will be appreciated.

  • you need to find out the connection details for your server. Call your web host and ask them for the following

    1 – FTP Server:
    2 – FTP username:
    3 – FTP password:

    Then go into filezilla, open a new connection (probably under File), and enter the server, username and password your host told you. Once you’re logged in you’ll see the folders on your server. Find the folder with wordpress then find the folder in it called /wp-content/ in that folder is a folder called /plugins/.

    Drag the plugin folder or file that you downloaded into this folder (not the zip file though), then go to the plugins page in wordpress and it shoudl be listed.

    This tutorial might help you with Filezilla:




    the OP is taken care of 🙂
