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.


The new wordpress directories is: public_html\wp-content\plugins\civicrm\civicrm\ext Upload the zip files here and then extract them into the folder. you then have to go to the extension page and click refresh for them to show and to be able to install.
