How can I download a plugin manually and install it myself

My site wordpress installation will not allow me to install wpmudev plugins the "wpmudev way" (for security reasons).

Please advise how can I download these manually so that I can upload these myself to my server.

Please note: I have indicated Pro Sites plugin above but this questions relates to all your plugins.

Thanks in advance

    Hi Patrick,

    I hope you are well today. :slight_smile:

    You can download the plugin zip files directly from the project pages and install them manually. To do this, please follow these steps:

    - Go to the project page of your desire plugin that you want to install e.g. Hustle :

    - Make sure that you're logged in into your WPMU DEV account and you should find the download link next to the green "Install" button, right below the gray "Download Plugin" link (see screenshot).

    - So once you have the zip file, you can either install it via the wordpress plugin uploader, or unzip it to your desktop & upload the folder to your /wp-content/plugins folder using FTP instead.

    This method applies for all the other plugins. BTW can you share more details what problem you are facing installing our plugins (If possible a screenshot)? Maybe we can give you better solution according to your environment without sacrificing your security settings. Or, would you mind allowing support access so we can have a closer look at this? To enable support access you can follow this guide here:

    Hope this helps! Please let me know if you need any further assistance. :relaxed:

    Have a nice day.
    Best regards,
