Magento 2 Cookie Consent v1.x Installation

Here you will learn how to correctly install the Magento 2 Cookie Consent extension using two methods – Installation via the FTP or Composer.

Important Information:

  1. First of all, make sure your system meets all the requirements necessary for the correct functioning of our General Data Protection Regulation Extension for Magento 2. For more details on system requirements, please read Magento 2 system requirements.

You can choose one of the following two methods to install the extension on your Magento 2 store:

Extension Installation via Composer

In order to install your Magento 2 Cookie Consent extension via Composer, open the console (SSH terminal) and follow the steps:

Step 1. Switch to your Magento 2 root directory in the terminal

cd /FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_MAGENTO2

where “FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_MAGENTO2” is the path to your Magento 2 folder on your server.

Step 2. Add the Plumrocket repository to your Composer configurations

composer config repositories.plumrocket composer https://plumrocket.com/repo/

Step 3. Download Plumrocket extension files

composer require plumrocket/module-cookie-consent

After running this command, you may be prompted to enter the username and password (see the How to Get Plumrocket Composer Repository Keys user guide).

Step 4. Install database and static resources

php bin/magento cache:flush
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

After running these commands, the extension should be installed successfully. A similar message should be displayed in your console as shown below:

Step 5. Set the serial key

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Navigate to your Magento 2 Admin Panel and click on the “Plumrocket” tab.
  2. If there is the “Cookie Consent tab in the list, it means that the extension has been successfully installed.
  3. Navigate to the “Cookie Consent -> select the “Configuration” option.
  4. Your Serial Key field should be auto-filled with the green check mark displayed. This means that the Serial Key has been successfully activated and the extension can be enabled. However, if the green check mark is not there – you will need to enter your product Serial Key manually. Please follow the License Installation for Magento 2 instructions for more information.
