XF 1.5 Does addon installation cause downtime?


Active member
I want to install a new addon to my production site and traffic is constantly high, I have copied the files over but before starting the install I would like to know if the process will result in some downtime

It shouldn't cause 'downtime' as such, but there may be a period of time where the site is not able to be used due to rebuilding.

In most cases though, add-on installation should take less than a minute.

Check with the add-on author for any specific questions related to it.
