Installing Extensions Via SSH
This is an old revision of the document!
To install an extensions via SSH, run the following command from the directory where Magento is installed:
- ./pear install EXTENSION_KEY
Replace EXTENSION_KEY with the appropriate value.
Note: if you haven’t already, you may need to initialise pear with the following command prior to installing an extension.
- ./pear mage-setup .
For example, to install the Blue Skin, you would do this:
- ./pear install magento-core/Interface_Frontend_Default_Default_Blue
Be sure to clear the pear cache out after you’re done:
- rm -rf downloader/pearlib/cache/* downloader/pearlib/download/*
Also, refresh the Magento cache (System → Cache Management)
If the extension was a theme, it can be enabled in the back-end under: System → Configuration → Design (Further information on Working with Magento Themes is available in the Designer’s Guide)
For other extensions, refer to the instructions and documentation provided with the extension.
