Module Manager

The Web Setup Wizard is being deprecated in Magento 2.3.6 and will be removed in Magento 2.4.0. After it is removed, you must use the command line to install or upgrade Magento, as well as extensions.

Module Manager lists the components and modules that are currently installed in your Magento system. Before a module is disabled, the system completes a readiness check and creates a backup.

  • The colored dot in the first column indicates if the module is currently on or off.

  • Click the down arrow before the component name to list any dependent packages that are associated with the module.

See Run the Module Manager in the developer documentation.

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