To install CT Admin you follow the same steps as any other ExpressionEngine add-on:

  1. Unzip the download
  2. Upload the extracted folder to your ExpressionEngine third party folder usually located at:
  3. Navigate to your Add-Ons management page and choose Modules
  4. Select CT Admin from the list and click install.

To uninstall CT Admin just click uninstall. Note that uninstalling the module doesn't remove the files though it will remove all your saved settings.

System Requirements

CT Admin 2.0 works best with ExpressionEngine >= 2.6 and CartThrob 2.5 though it should function on lower versions without issue.


It is highly recommended that an index be created on your database's member table on the "email" column. This is due to how CartThrob relates members and to make a smoother, and faster, CT Admin experience.

You have a small typo on your CT Admin Install instructions screen on the Mithra62 site.  Step 4 indicates to install Backup Pro instead of CT Admin ; )
