bulk install of plugins into wp-content\plugins folder

I've downloaded WPMUDEV plugins which come as zip files. Can I copy them into the wp-content\plugins folder and they will work?
Presumably I need to unzip the files and then copy into this folder or can the zip files go in that folder?
Also, if I overwrite existing folder with same name then this simply updates the plugin to the latest version?

    Hello Jon,

    Presumably I need to unzip the files and then copy into this folder or can the zip files go in that folder?

    You have to first unzipp plugins, and the copy folders in to wp-content/plugins - zipped plugins will not work :slight_smile:

    Also, if I overwrite existing folder with same name then this simply updates the plugin to the latest version?

    Yes, exactly it will update the plugin.

    You can always add zipped plugin throug the Dashboard -> Plugins -> Add new and click button "Upload plugin" at the top of the page. This also works for the Themes (Themes -> Add new).

    Kind regards,
    Kasia
