Does it shows as an installed app on Applications page? If so, you are probably restricted from seeing it. Go to ACP -> Members-> Administrators and see if there’s any restriction for you or your group. 

I'm an Administrator, so no restrictions. However, it does not show up as an installed app on Applications page. Where would I find that app, please? Thank you very much.

I have purchased the Pages Application. However, I'm not the Admin who did the initial install on the server (we are self-hosted). I'm reading the instructions in the link given above, but where do I access the zipped file to download in my client area? The only download option I seem to have is the blue button "Download Invision Community", but isn't that for the whole interface?

 

This is the paragraph of instructions from the guide linked above, but it's very unclear.

You may decide to add on new Invision Community applications after you initially setup your Community to expand the capabilities. To do this, simply download the full zip from the client area, upload all files, and then go to Applications. At the bottom of that page you will see a list of available but not installed applications. Just click the application you want to install.

Thank you very much for advice on this.

Yes, read the section Adding a newly purchased application of the link I provided. 

I read that, as stated in my previous post. In fact, that's what I'm quoting. It does not specify the file to download. I do not see a way to download one Application, just the "Download Invision Community" button that appears to be the whole thing. I do not want to have to reupload all files. I just want to install the Pages Application.

Thank you. I will do that. I have already edited quite a bit on everything by now and would not want to overwrite it. Unfortunately, it was another Admin who did the initial install and set-up, and they are no longer active. So, I've jumped in feet first, though maybe a little over my head. 😉

If you've made edits to the actual IPS files (the .php files on the server), you should not do that. Instead, look into how to extend IPS via applications and plugins:

https://invisioncommunity.com/developers

If you mean you've configured the software up the way you'd like, without making changes to the actual files themselves, those changes should be retained and you can simply overwrite the files on your web server's filesystem after unzipping the .zip file you get from the client area. Be sure and make a backup of your filesystem and database before hand so you can revert back if something goes wrong. Then go to ACP > System > Applications and install Pages (and anything else you've added) as shown on the screen.

Pay special attention to file permissions when overwriting things. You need to make sure that the directories that need to be writable to IPS remain so.
