The plugin will become active, and you’ll see “Awesome Gallery” link at the main navigation:

Troubleshooting

Problem:  You see “Connection Information” screen when uploading the file:Connection information

Solution:

Open the folder you installed WordPress to. Find wp-config.php file and open it with text editor of your choice. Then, add the next lines:

define( 'FS_METHOD', 'direct' );
define( 'FS_CHMOD_DIR', 0775 );
define( 'FS_CHMOD_FILE', 0775 );

in the middle of the file, then save it and try to upload the plugin again.

The second way

Step 1: Download the file from  CodeCanyon

Open CodeCanyon downloads page, click “Download” next to Awesome Gallery at the list of the plugins you bought:

Download button

 

Then, click “Installable WordPress file only”. Your browser will start the download process. When the file will finish downloading, unpack it like you usually do with archives on your operating system.

Step 2: Upload

Open your FTP client of your choice, connect to your site using FTP and upload “awesome-gallery” folder to your site’s wp-content/plugins directory. There are no screenshots for this process because lots of FTP clients exist, and every hosting company’s configuration is slightly different from others.

Step 3: Activate the plugin

Click “Plugins” at the left side navigation, find “Awesome Gallery” among other plugins and click “Activate” next to it.Activate
