Installing the Essentials Module

Installing the essentials module to UltimatePOS is easy as cake. Make sure you meet the below requirements:

  1. Since this is not a standalone application you will need UltimatePOS (Download from here)
  2. UltimatePOS – Advance the latest version installed. For UltimatePOS installation step refer to this documentation.


For Essentials module 2.0 or higher follow the instruction given in this link.

For older version follow the steps given below:

  1. Unzip the file downloaded from codecanyon.net. Inside that, you will find the “Essentials” directory.
  2. Go to UltimatePOS installed directory. There you will find a folder named “Modules” (in the same level as app or bootstrap directory).
    If this folder is not present then create the “Modules” folder (Make sure the folder name is exactly “Modules” with “M” in capital case). It should be inside the POS codebase, in the same level as the “public” folder. (NOT inside the public folder)
  3. Upload or Cut-Paste the  “Essentials” directory inside this “Modules” directory.
  4. Open .env file present inside pos folder. Inside that, you will find “ADMINISTRATOR_USERNAMES” configuration. Add the superadmin username in this option.
    Example if “user1” is superadmin then:
    user1 mentioned here is for example only. You have to add an already existing/signed up username here.
    NOTE: If you have already installed SaaS-Superadmin or UltimatePOS-to-WooCommerce module then no need to do step 4.
  5. Login with superadmin (username which is added in step 4). After log in, you will able to see the essentials menu present at the bottom of the sidebar. If not present them make sure the above steps are followed properly.
  6. After login, install superadmin by going to the below URL:
    If you pos is installed in www.example.com then go to www.example.com/essentials/install
