    If you are seeing the macosx folder then the tool you are using to unzip is likely giving you a garbage output... try using 7-zip.

    You can't use File Manager in cPanel to upload an entire folder - it is only desinged to do one file at a time.

    If you have the same options as I do, in the Files section in cPanel, where you can see File Manger, you should see an option for Unlimited FTP.

    Use that to upload the entire folder.

    If you haven't got Unlimited FTP check if you have another ftp option instead.

    If hs using filemanager, he could also upload the plugin zip to hs plugins directory and unzip there.

    Yep, that would do it!


    With the zip file uploaded to the plugins folder, right click and choose 'Extract' and it will create the right folder and extract the files.

    You're right! I knew there was something wrong with not being able to upload the entire folder from my file manager. Once I got your first reply I looked for an unlimited FTP folder which my host didn't have. So I looked for one online and downloaded it. I ended up using Firezilla which worked perfectly. I was able to connect to my server and drag the entire folder to it's proper location. I checked it to see if the plugin was listed in the Forum Dashboard and it worked Perfectly!

    Yes, I gave up on this a few months back but I'm real glad I reached out again for help. Thanks so much!

    Problem Solved.
