There is an extensive official guide on the wordpres.org website on plugin installations. You can read that if you prefer a more detailed guide.
Installing via the Plugin Manager
In WordPress the easies way of adding a new plugin is by the built-in plugin manager. Follow these steps to succesfully install this plugin.
- Save the ajax-search-pro.zip plugin file somewhere on your computer. You can dowload it from your codecanyon downloads page.
Log in to your WordPress back end area, it's usually on the yourdomain.com/wp-admin url
After logging in click on the Plugins menu and hit the Add New button
Now, click on the Upload Plugin button
Click on the Choose file button and select the ajax-search-pro.zip file. Then click the Install now button
After successful installation, you will need to activate the plugin. You can do that on the installation page, or go back to the plugins page and activate it there.
Using this method is highly recommended, it should work on 99% of all servers. If by any reason this method is not working, or it's not possible, then there is another way of installing a WordPress plugin
Installing via FTP
If the above method is not working, you can use FTP to upload the plugin files. This method is not recommended for beginners, so please be careful.
If you don't know how to connect to your website via ftp, I recommend reading the Filezilla tutorial.
After connecting to your server via ftp, you should search for your site's wordpress directory. It's usually located in a path like public_html/wp-content/plugins/ or www/wp-content/plugins/
Unzip the ajax-search-pro.zip file and copy the ajax-search-pro folder to the servers plugin directory
After succesfully copying the ajax-search-pro directory you will still need to activate the plugin. Log in to your sites back end.
That's it! After activation you should use be able to use the plugin.
Works the same way as non-multisite installation. Please read the previous chapters.
