    Uploading it as a zip file using the wp uploader is probably the easiest way.

    Make sure that the zip contains the plugin only, and is not a folder containing the plugin plus other text files. Go to the WP Admin dashboard, click on 'Add New' under Plugins in the left menu. On the new page, on the top menu under 'Install Plugins' click on 'upload'. On the new screen, click on browse, find your plugin file on your pc, click install now. Then activate it and you should be good to go.
