Hi @lemiran


If you are trying to install it using Magento connect it may not work.

Try to manually install it after extracting the package. You may be facing issue because of php 7 as it is not officially supported by Magento for Magento 1x.

Hi @muk_t and thank you for answering me Smiley Wink

My developper adviced us to activate the PHP7 in order to boost magento performances...


I dezipped the package but i have app/lib/skin folders and package.xml

How could i install it now?
