  2. Connect to your website source folder with SSH/SFTP/FTP clientand upload all the files and folders from the extension packageto the corresponding root folder of your Magento installation:Please use the Merge upload mode. Do not replace the whole folders, but merge them. This way your SSH/SFTP/FTP client will only add new files. This mode is used by default by most of SSH/SFTP/FTP clients software. For MacOS it’s recommended to use Transmit or Cyberduck.
