    Upload the files using an FTP program to your wp-content/plugin folder. Or, you can zip them up in one folder, and use the plugin uploader in your Wordpress dashboard. CHECK THE CODEX AT WORDPRESS WEBSITE FOR MORE

    You can also use the cpanel of your hosting to upload it.

    Use a FTP program like Filezilla to upload it...
