I downloaded master .zip from the civi website, and it is in my download box. How do I get it to a folder in my website to put the zip into my program
If you have CiviCRM installed on your WordPress installation as a plugin and you are inside CiviCRM trying to install a CiviCRM Extension. This is what I do to had an extension that is not automatically available with CiviCRM Extension manager. I go to my server manager CPanel and use the file manager to upload the extension zip file. I place the extension zip file in to the folder; public_html/wp-content/plugins/files/civicrm/extensions. Extract the zip file and the new CiviCRM extension will become available to install within the CiviCRM Extension Manager.
