Some modules can call for you to modify the code of your shop and/or demand you to have advanced understanding of PHP or other programming languages.
Downloading the module package is the first step in Oxid eShop’s module installation process. Typically, this can be found on the module developer’s website or on a community website that focuses on Oxid eShop modules.
The module package needs to be unzipped after downloading, then uploaded to the “modules” directory on your Oxid eShop server. Typically, you can do this by connecting to the server using SSH or an FTP client.
It’s time to activate the module in the Oxid eShop backend when it has been uploaded. To accomplish this, sign in to the Oxid eShop installation’s backend and go to the “Extensions” option. A list of all the modules that are currently installed on your store will be visible to you. Simply click the “Activate” button next to a module to make it active.
The module should become immediately usable after being activated. Depending on the module, it might need to be configured further before use. For instance, some modules might need you to enter an API key or other data for them to work properly.
The module’s documentation should contain instructions on how to configure it.
You can uninstall and deactivate modules from Oxid eShop in addition to installing and activating them. Simply select the “Deactivate” button next to a module in the “Extensions” menu to deactivate it. Click the “Delete” button next to a module to delete it.
