Farm solutions are packaged as SharePoint solution package (WSP) files that contain assemblies, other non-compiled components, and an XML manifest file. A farm administrator uses Windows PowerShell, the STSADM command-line tool, or the SharePoint Central Administration Web site to install solution packages to the server environment. After a solution package is installed, the farm administrator can activate the solution to a specific Web application (or multiple Web applications, if you use the full-trust model).
