Extension Manager

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.

For technical information, see Run the Extension Manager in the developer documentation.

Important: Always flush the cache after installing or upgrading Magento, or any extensions and modules.
