VIDEO How to install an Extension with Shopunity

What is different?

We have implemented Shopunity Installation process to accommodate every installation with dependency support. This means we do not keep all the dependent files in the installation package so that the code does't duplicate or rewrite itself. Also we now do not need to worry about updating every extension, if one of the dependency packages has been updated.

 

Before installing your extension

  1. You first need to install the Shopunity module. Here are the instructions
  2. Only after you have installed Shopunity (or it has been already installed) you can start installing the extension.

 

If your extension is available in the Shopunity market place, you can install it by simply clicking install.

Updating an extension

Updating an extension is usually very much like installing. Usually this is enough. Yet sometimes you will be required to reinstall the extension in the extension modules section of your opecart admin.

If the extension is avaliable in the Shopunity database, you can update it by clicking update button from the Shopunity admin panel in your opencart.
