Download and Install Watch My Domains SED
You can download Watch My Domains SED from here. If you purchased the professional edition, use the download link that was provided to you at the time of purchase.
Unpack the contents of the wmdsed-xx-xx-xx.zip into a folder on your web server. Make sure that the folder is web-accessible.
Make sure that you have access to a MySQL database. You should have the database name, a valid username and a password.
If you are installing for the first time, copy or rename the file config-sample.php in the root of the base folder to config.php.
Open config.php and add the database name, user name and password. Save the configuration file.

The fastest way to install is by using a secure shell to connect to your server and using wget to get the download pack. Use unzip to unpack the contents directly into your web site folder.
As an example, you could do something like...
cd /home/softnik/sites/ wget --content-disposition https://domainpunch.com/sed/wmdsed30_trial.zip.php unzip wmdsed30_trial.zip cd wmdsed30 cp config-sample.php config.php nano config.php
