    Hey Stevie Kay,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    Sorry if all this looks confusing, let me help you out here and once you get over first couple of steps it will be a breeze afterwards :slight_smile:

    WPMU DEV Dashboard is installed like any other plugin, there are two ways to do it, both require you to download the plugin first from here:
    https://premium.wpmudev.org/project/wpmu-dev-dashboard/

    After you have downloaded the .zip file of the plugin you can go to your WordPress admin section, navigate to Plugins section and on top you will see "Add New" button, when you click on it you will be presented with new screen where you can upload your plugin.
    Once it finished uploading activate it and that's it.

    Second way would be via FTP, after you access your WP installation files navigate to wp-content/plugins/ folder and upload unzipped folder there.
    Then again go to your WP admin and in plugins section activate the plugin.

    Once the plugin is activated you will see new WPMU DEV panel in your admin section, go there to login with your WPMU DEV account.
    After logging in it will show two new panels, Themes and Plugins, from there you can simply click on Install button for any plugin or theme you want.

    You can find more about installing plugins here:

    Let me know if there's anything unclear and if you require further assistance with this :slight_smile:

    Best regards,
    Predrag
