Manual Installation

If you’re familiar with WordPress plugins and zip files, this is the standard download-upload method.

  1. Click the Manual Installation tab.
  2. Click the Download button. WPBlazer saves the zip file to your device.
  3. Move the zip file to a convenient location so that it’s easy to find.

Adding the plugin

  1. Go to your WordPress site admin dashboard.
  2. On the side menu, click Plugins > Add New.
  3. Click Upload Plugin > Choose file and then locate the zip file on your device.
  4. Click Install Now. 

  • After activating the app, WPBlazer displays on the side menu.

Possible error message

You might experience an upload error message. Depending on the type of hosting service you have and the provider, you might be able to fix the problem. Google this phrase, and you’ll find plenty of solutions. They usually involve editing the htaccess file or php.ini file. This short video provides some useful tips. You could contact your hosting company and ask them to increase the file size limit.

Auto Installation

If you prefer an easier solution, click the Auto Installation tab. Enter the URL for your WordPress site (include http:// or https://) and the username and password. Click Activate Plugin, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Installation takes a few minutes to complete.

Bulk Import

Do you have a lot of WordPress sites? Save time and let us do the installation. Here’s how.

  1. Click the Bulk Import tab.
  2. Download the CSV template. (see below)
  3. Add web information to the file.
  4. Upload the file.

That’s it.

We usually complete bulk installation in 2-3 business days. Sometimes sooner.

CSV template

Open the Google sheet and make a copy. Save the new file on your Google drive. For each website, enter the URL, username, and password.

Install Chrome tool

If you want to install WPBlazer on multiple sites and you run Chrome on your device, this option can save a bit of time. With the extension, you don’t need to download or upload the zip file. You can add sites one at a time or use the bulk import tool.
