Here, you’ll find the option to upload the plugin. Click the Choose File button and select the Duplicator Pro zip file you recently downloaded.

After your file is uploaded, click on the Install Now button.

This initiates the installation process for you. After the plugin is installed, click the Activate Plugin button to activate Duplicator Pro on your site.

Once you activate the plugin, make sure to verify your Duplicator Pro license key to receive automatic updates and plugin support.
