Install plugins

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Download new ProcessWire modules from the official website. Once downloaded, follow these steps:

  • Place the .module file in the site/modules/ directory. If the module contains more than one file (for example, supporting .css or .js files), a new directory should be created for the module under the site/modules directory with the same name as the module. For instance, the AdminBar module and supporting files would be placed in the site/modules/AdminBar/ directory.

  • Log in to the ProcessWire administration dashboard.

  • Select the “Modules” tab.

  • Click the “Check for new modules” button.

  • Click the “Install” button next to the modules to be installed.
