Hello, i have several extensions i need to install but am really confused. I have noticed in some of the documentation it says to upload the files to app/code then run
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
which i have used for some and it works. But some have an added composer step.
If the extension doesnt come with documentation (cloudinary) how do i know which method to use? I can't use web start wizard which would make this 100x easier because it gets stuck during the process of installing and stays stuck. Thanks in advice for your help
From looking at the repository for the cloudinary extension, there is a dependency defined in composer so I'd recommend running composer install to see if that installs anything. I don't know where you got the cloudinary package from to know what sort of format it's in. There's no harm in running composer install even if you didn't need to.
