How to use
Upload your packages to the URL found in the component or your own custom URL using a HTTP POST request. The request must contain a Authorization header which value must be your authentication key. The form key must be named package so the software can pick up the uploaded package. After installing the package, MS PackageUpload will return the status of the installation.
How to install this extension?
Install this extension like you install any other Joomla! extension. In your administrator environment, go to Extensions > Install, select the extension and press install.
How to install packages through MS PackageUpload
MS PackageUpload allows fileuploads through the basic URL that can be found in the component itself or a custom SEF URL created by Joomla! You may create a SEF URL by enabling the SEF URL option in your Joomla! site and create a new menu item.
The file must be uploaded to the URL. The request needs an Authorization header containing your key. This key can be found in the administrator component. The field name for the file upload must be package. The component will respond with a message if something went wrong.
