Installation Instructions for OpenCart 2.x

OpenCart 2.x introduces the Extension Installer feature, which we will use:

  1. Unzip the downloaded ZIP file into a new folder

  2. Login to your OpenCart admin panel and go to Extensions > Extension Installer. Upload the file *.ocmod.zip for your specific OpenCart version on your computer, which is in the folder you created in Step 1.

    NoteIf you receive an error, this most probably means that your OpenCart FTP settings are not properly configured, or FTP is not enabled on your server. To resolve this, follow these steps:

    STEP A: Go to System > Settings > Edit > FTP and update your FTP settings. After you are done, try uploading SEO Backpack again. If it does not work and you receive an error, follow step B.

    STEP B: Go to this link: http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=18892 and download and install the Quickfix for the OpenCart Extension installer. Before installing, make sure that the Quickfix extension is compatible with the version of your OpenCart. After you are done, try uploading SEO Backpack again. If this does not help, try to manually install the module.

  3. Go to Extensions > Modules and find SEO Backpack. Then, click the [Install] button.

  4. Go to Extensions > Modifications and click the Refresh button on the top right

Congratulations! You have successfully installed SEO Backpack! You can access it from Extensions > Modules > SEO Backpack.

If you are using the SEO Backpack module on a live server, make sure to insert your license key in the Extensions > Modules > SEO Backpack > Support.
