Downloading and installing a plugin from a new site can be daunting, but hopefully, this article will help! Below are detailed instructions on how to download the iThemes Security Pro plugin from the Member Panel and then install the plugin on your site.
The first step is to log in to the iThemes Member Panel, which can be found here.
This will be the username and password you initially set up on the iThemes Member Panel. Please keep in mind that your password can be changed at any time, however, your username cannot.
Once logged in to the iThemes Member Panel select the downloads button or choose to download your plugin from the downloads section listed first on the home page.
Depending on your support plan, this is also the location where you will download iThemes Sync or BackupBuddy. However, we will stick to installing iThemes Security Pro in this article. Installation assistance for BackupBuddy can be found here and Sync instructions can be found here.
Select Security from the list of downloads and the screen will change to show the available downloads in that section. Please keep in mind, that your download options may look different depending on your support plan.
Select Download to the right of iThemes Security Pro.
Now you have downloaded iThemes Security Pro.
Please note: when installing a plugin, the file must be uploaded in the .zip file format. Some browsers will automatically unzip files when being downloaded. In this event, you can simply rezip/compress the files back into a zipped file before installing the plugin on your WordPress Site.
