    Well, first you must have access to the files on your server. This would either be through FTP, SSH, or by local administration. It would be similar to how you installed vanilla, unless it was through a service such as godaddy.

    Vanilla is split into sections for easy comprehension. Directly inside your vanilla folder will be another folder named 'plugins'.

    Take the folder of the plugin you wish to install
    (it should have the same name as the plugin and contain at least one class.*.plugin.php or default.php) and drop it directly in the plugins folder.

    From there, all you have to do is go to your website control panel, and enable the plugin (they are off by default)

    hope this helps

    I think your answer has made me realise the problem. I had someone else set this up for me so I guess I need to get access to the server he created, thanks
