Installing the Module–Mushroom Image

DotNetNuke 5 refers to modules as extensions. There are two types of module extensions:

  1. Pre-installed Modules – modules included in DNN that have not been included in the build.
  2. Third Party Modules – modules built or bought and added to DNN to extend DNN’s core functionality.

We will look at third party installs only here.

Adding third Party Modules

  1. Log into your DNN instances using a Host account.

  2. From the HOST drop down menu select Module Definitions.

  3. On the Module Definitions page, select Install Module from the Module Definitions’ module options drop down.

  4. You will be taken to the Install Package wizard. Browse to the module package you would like to install. Of course, in this example I am installing Open Web Studio. After you have browsed, select Next.

  5. Information about the select module will display. Select Next.

  6. If available, release note information will display. Select Next.
