The free and premium extensions for Groups can be installed by using the appropriate plugin zip file. We recommend the following procedure:

1. Make a full backup of your site including all folders and its database.

2. If you have not done so already, install and activate the Groups plugin. Go to Plugins > Add New and search for groups, click install and then activate the Groups plugin by itthinx.

3. Download/Purchase the extension you want to install. You will usually obtain access to a zip file which contains the plugin that you are going to install.
