Installation and updates

Before attempting to install 4SEO on your site, please review its technical requirements.

Do not try to install in case something don't fit, you may break your site. Pretty much everything is reversible, but it may cost unrequired efforts to do so.


As with any substantial change you make to your website, we certainly encourage you to perform installation and setup on a test copy of your site. When everything is tested, you can then move on to production.


You may download 4SEO as a single zip file from our download area. Though 4SEO is made of many parts (a component and various plugins, multiple languages), the zip file contains all of them.


4SEO is installed as any other extension, through Joomla! installer. Installation of the single zip file downloaded from our site will take care of all dependencies, and there is no additional step to take after installation, aside from initial setup.

Be sure to check out our 4SEO video getting starte guide. It is a tour of 4SEO operation and features, giving an overview of what it can do for your site.


4SEO is updated very often. Updates are signalled through the regular Joomla updates notifications system. In addition, a notification will be displayed in 4SEO control panel in case of new version.

If you open the notification, the full changelog of that new version will be displayed.

Updates are performed as well through Joomla one-click updater.
