    Hello

    I am about to attempt to install my first Cpanel plug for my hosting clients on a few of my dedicated servers.
    So I am wondering the plugin provider gave me the ssh command (its a wget command) I would need but am not sure when I ssh into my server as Root where should I CD to (change directory) to first? I am just not sure what directory I should be in first or what directory to download/install the plugin for?

    If it makes a difference its the Attracta Plugin

    thanks all

    If it's the Attracta plugin, it's probably a .sea file (self-extracting archive). you simply download it, make it executable (chmod +x $download.sea) and then run the downloaded file ( ./download.sea). It will unpack and install itself properly.
