Magento 1 Extension - Setup Guide

Before you can install the PCA Predict module you need to obtain an extension key from Magento Connect or download the module package file from us. Once you have that you're ready to get started.

NOTE: These instructions are for Magento 1. If you are using version 2, please use the Magento 2 setup guide.

Install the extension into your Magento store

To set up the extension:

  • Head to your Magento Admin Panel then to System > Magento Connect > Magento Connect Manager.
  • You will see a listing of all the extensions currently installed in your Magento store - if you have any extensions from PCA Predict already, uninstall these, and clear the Magento cache (Magento Admin Panel > System > Cache Management > Flush Magento Cache) before proceeding.
  • Paste your Extension Key into Magento Connect Manager, and click Install, then Proceed, or browse for the downloaded package file and click Upload.
  • The console at the bottom of the page will report when the module has been installed and the cache has been cleared.
