I dont know how to upload the file to my Wordpress site

I am using a MacBook Air and I downloaded the dashboard file (called wpmudev-updates) from your website but I don't know how to upload it to my Wordpress account. I have also tried to search for the same plugin within the Wordpress' plugin menu but I could not find it.
Please advise the exact procedure how to get it on. Thank you.

    Hi Louis,
    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    This is a custom plugins you would not find in Plugins -> Add New search section. To install/upload this plugin follow the steps mentioned in our installing regular plugins manual.

    It is good practice to backup your install completely before installing new plugins.

    1. Download the plugin (skip if you already did).

    2. Unzip the file to extract all of the files into a folder on your computer/ Macbook Air.

    3. Navigate to following location where you have installed WordPress site via FTP program like FileZilla or cPanel's FileManger.
    ../wp-content/plugins

    4. Upload the folder you downloaded and extracted in step 1 and 2.

    5. Now go to Admin -> Plugins and you will see a new plugin with name WPMU DEV Dashboard and click on activate link.

    6. Done!

    If you are still not sure then please read this manual:

    Hope that helps! Feel free to post a reply if you need further assistance :slight_smile:

    Best Regards,
