1) Downloading the File

Download and unpack the archived package for the extension, after obtaining it from either the Confirmation Email or from the User Dashboard on

Unpack this file before the next step.

2) Preparing the File Structure

Make sure the path root/app/code/Cminds exists, as shown below. If it doesn't, create the necessary folders.

Then, inside "Cminds" you should create a folder named " Coupon" (marked in gray below). Paste the files you unpacked in the last step there.

In Magento 2, extension files are placed in one module folder so there is no need to copy files to different directories like it used to be in Magento 1.

3) Installing the Extension

Open the console and type the following commands: 

  1. php bin/magento module:enable Cminds_Coupon
  2. php bin/magento setup:upgrade
  3. For Magento 2.0.x, 2.1.x:
    rm -rf var/di
    rm -rf var/generation
    For Magento 2.2.x:
    rm -rf generated/*
  4. php bin/magento setup:di:compile
  5. php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

4) Checking if the Extension is Enabled

To check the list of enabled modules, you can either:

  • Run the command "php bin/magento module:status" in the console command.
  • Or check manually in "app/etc/config.php" file.

5) Flushing the Magento Cache

The last thing that you need to do is to flush Magento cache. You can do this in two ways:

  • Running in console command the command 'php bin/magento cache:clean':
  • php bin/magento cache:clean
  • In the Admin Panel, heading to System → Cache Management, then selecting all elements and clicking 'Flush Magento Cache'.

Some extensions can be enable or disabled from their settings menu as well. They are set Enabled by default.

You can check this status in the following path:

Admin Panel → Stores → Configuration → Extension name → Configuration → General
