How to install an Amasty extension?

      There are 2 two ways of installing an extension on Magento 2. It's recommended to use one and the same installation method for all Amasty extensions. 

Composer installation

      1. To download and install Magento modules, the vendor repository is required. The Amasty repository can be added with the next command:
composer config repositories.amasty composer <path>
      Instead of <path>, indicate the repository for a specific Magento edition: - for community extensions. - for enterprise extensions.

      2. The customer will be asked for a login (Public Key) and password (Private Key) when trying to install the package from the Amasty Composer repository for the first time. Access keys can be found and generated in the customer account in Products → Access keys:

      It is possible to manually save the keys in the repository, so there is no need to get authorized every time. Find the Magento root directory and indicate:


      Where $COMPOSER_AMASTY_USERNAME is the Public Key and $COMPOSER_AMASTY_PASSWORD is the Private Key.

      Otherwise, when the customer will be asked for access keys for the first time, they need to agree to save the credentials by printing yes.

      3. To install the module, the following command should be used:
composer require amasty/<module-name>
      Here <module-name> is the Composer name of the extension you are installing. To find the Composer name of the module, open the Products tab of your account and find the Composer packages section:

      4. Execute the following commands after the extension is installed:
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile 
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy (your locale)
      For more information about Composer and its options to manage Amasty extensions, refer to our Composer guide

Manual file upload

      1. Navigate to the Products tab in your customer accountScroll down to the Packages section and click the Download link for the extension that should be updated:

      2. Unpack the downloaded .zip file. 
      3. Connect to the server where the website source folder is located with an FTP/SFTP client (WinSCP, Filezilla, Cyberduck, etc).
      4. Go to /upload/app and upload the files to the /app folder of your Magento website using the ‘Merge’ upload mode. This way, your FTP/SFTP client will only add new files.

      5. Connect to the Magento root directory via SSH and run the following commands: 
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
