 In this article, let me guide you on the way to install and use PrestaHero Connect from our website!

I.  Download Prestahero Connect

  • Log in to your account on PrestaHero. Please note that your account must be verified before downloading

  • Search "PrestaHero Connect" in the search box

  • On the PrestaHero Connect page, click on “Free download” button to download the ZIP file of the module.

  

II. Installing PrestaHero Connect

  • Navigate to “Modules / Modules & Services”, click on “Upload a module / Select file

  • Select the module file “prestaheroconnect.zip” from your computer then click on “Open” to install

  • Click on “Configure” button of the module you just installed to open the module’s configuration page.

  

Important Note:

To view purchased products, install, and update them, PrestaHero Connect module must be installed on the main website, which is the domain you specified during the checkout process. This ensures that the modules you purchase from PrestaHero will be installed on the correct website.

For example:

  • If you entered "www.example.com" at checkout, PrestaHero Connect module should be installed on this domain.
  • If you have two sites (Live and Dev) with the same domain (e.g., "www.example.com" and "www.example.com/dev"), you will be able to install and use the PrestaHero Connect module on both sites.
  • If the two sites have different domains (e.g., "www.example.com" for Live and "www.dev.example.com" for Dev), you should only install the PrestaHero Connect module on the domain you specified during checkout (in this case, "www.example.com")
  • If you are using our Migration/migrate/migrator module, and the Live domain you specified at checkout is "www.example.com", but you need to install the Migration/migrate/migrator module on a Dev site, in this case, PrestaHero Connect will only work on the Dev site if your Dev site uses the same domain as your Live site (e.g., "www.example.com/dev")

This ensures that all your purchased modules are properly authenticated and functional on your main website.
