/wp-content/plugins folder – where is it?

  • I know this may be a beyond basic question but I need help! I have a plug in that I would like to use, only I can’t figure out how to upload it to the /wp-content/plugins folder. Is this folder in my WordPress admin area, or should I be looking in the cpanel of my website? Any tips are appreciated!

    This is what you do.

    Step One: Connect to your website using your favorite FTP access program. (example: Filezilla)(reason: the cpanel doesn’t doesn’t allow you to upload a whole directory, just individual files)

    Step Two: Navigate to the directory where you installed wordpress. (example: www/mysite.com/wordpress/ or www/mysite.com/)

    Step Three: Now look for the folder named “wp-content”, and click on it.

    Step Four: Click on the folder named “plugins”.

    Step Five: Now that you are in the plugins folder, drag and drop the plug in. —Important— If the plugin is more that one file, drag the folder where the plugin is located. (example: bling.php, bling_config.php are located in the “bling” folder, drag and drop the “bling” folder into the plugins directory, so the plugin will work.

    That’s it.

    anything else?

    Thanks so much gabesands! I really appreciate it!
