Learn how to install a custom module in DotNetNuke

When you download or buy a DotNetNuke plug-in module, it is delivered as a single .zip-compressed archive file. All you have to do is upload the archive file to the DotNetNuke portal, and DNN will install the module for you.

Go to the host menu and select the Module Definitions.

Here you can see the list of the pre-installed modules. At the top left corner (and on the bottom of the page) there is a drop down menu, where you will be able to see "Upload Module" link.

Browse to the folder where your module is located and select the package you want to upload to your Dot Net Nuke portal. Then click on the "Upload New File" link

The screen will now be full of installation messages. If no errors are reported you will see Success at the bottom of the page.

Now the module is installed and you can place it on any page you like, just as you did with the Forum module during the previous module installation.

We told you it was easy ;).
