Module Installation

General Topics

Our modules are delivered as a standard DNN installable zip or PA (Private Assembly). You install the module just like you would install any other DNN module.

Note:  Before installing any module it’s a good idea to back up your DNN database and DNN installation folder. This is very important, as you can always roll back to previous status easily if installation goes wrong.

Take the following steps to install the module:

Step 1 – Navigate to the Extensions

  1. Log in to your DNN site using a Host account or an administrator account with module upload permissions.
  2. From the DNN host menu, select Extensions to install the module. You can reach Module Extensions from the Host menu as shown in the figure below.
