How to install new modules and extensions in Magento 1.x?

Magento has the built-in functionality to automatically install additional modules for your online store. All you need is the extension’s key and the script will install it for you in just a few clicks. In this article, we will explain in details how to install additional modules/extensions for Magento via Magento Connect. Log into the Magento administrator area. Then go to System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager.

A new page will open for the Magento Connect Manager and you will be asked to provide your administrative credentials again. Once logged in you will see 2 sections: Extensions and Settings. It is recommended to verify the options chosen in the Settings section first.

In the Settings section, there are several options you can configure if you need to do it and if you know what you’re doing. It is safe to leave those options to their default values.
