Can someone explain to me how to install an extension.  I expected to download some code that I would need to load to the server.  In my particular case, I am intersted in the 2checkout module.

When I go to the 2Checkout Module, I see a releases tab, but no links in the releases tab:

I see a GetExtensionKey button.  How do I use this key?

Hi jgills,

You can install extensions via Magento Connect through your admin panel and/or via SSH.  Installing Magento extensions is not like unzipping a wordpress pluggin - it’s a ‘built in’ system.

Check out this link for more information on installing Magento extensions via SSH -

Hope this helps.
