How to install a module in DNN – Here we go!

by | Feb 13, 2021

Are you looking for the steps to install a module on the DNN page? We can help you.

By installing new modules on the DNN page we can add extra features to the website.

Website owners mainly use this DNN application due to the portal based architecture. This allows running many sites on just one DNN installation.

Moreover, DNN provides the capability for multiple users with different permission levels to manage a website or a section of the content.

Here at Bobcares, we often receive requests to add a module on the DNN page as part of our Server Management Services for web hosts and online service providers.

Today, let’s see the procedure to install a module in DNN.


How to install a module on the DNN page

Recently, one of our customers approached us to add a module on the page. Now, let’s see how our Support Engineers add the module for our customers.

1. Initially we log in to the DNN site as a host or superuser account.

2. Then select the Settings option from the DNN persona bar.

3. After that, we select the Extensions option from the Settings.

4. Then click on Click on Install Extension option.

5. We upload the zip file containing the extension package.

6. On the next page, it displays package information and it includes the extension’s version, description, and information about the creator.

7. Then we click the Next button on the pages. It gives information about the Release Notes and the current release of the extension.

8. After that, we tick the Accept the license option to continue.

9. Then the Package Installation Report displays the log of actions performed by the installation.

Finally, we verify that the module is installed or not by checking the module in the list under the Installed Extensions tab.


What is Create New Module option?

This option is to create a new module manually. Through this, we upload the custom module. However, we recommend this method for only experienced DNN module developers.

Because if we don’t create the module properly then the site may break. So we only recommend this method for experienced persons in DNN or else you can contact our Support Engineers anytime for any further assistance.

To create the new module we recommend the below steps.

1. Initially we log in to the DNN site as a host or superuser account.

2. Next, we select the Extensions from Settings option from the DNN persona bar

3. Then we click on Create New Module option.

4. After that in the Create New Module From select the New from the drop-down list.

5. In the Owner Folder select the folder to use for the Module Development and in the Module Name option enter a friendly name for the module.

6. In the Module Folder select a folder where the module files and folders are populated.

7. Then in the File Name enter the name for the new module and in the Description provide the description about the module.

8. At Language, select either C Sharp or Visual Basic as the language used for this module.

9. Make the Add a test page option to On mode to add a test page for the new module.

10. Finally, we click on the Create Module Button.
