Magento Marketplace User Guide

Install the Extension

Installing an extension is a three-step process that should take place during off-peak hours. Before the extension is installed, your store is put into maintenance mode, checked for readiness, and backed up. After the extension is installed, it must be configured for your store according to the developer’s instructions.

Before you begin, make sure that your system meets the prerequisites for Component Manager. To learn more, see: Component Manager and System Upgrade Guide in the developer documentation.
