Dashboard and Plugin Updates

I was wondering if we needed the wpmu dev dashboard to update the plugins? Or could we manually update them when a new version comes out?

    Hi @webstaff@maryville.edu

    Hope you're well?

    Ideally yes you would need the dashboard plugin in order to update, it would certainly be a lot quicker, with dashboard installed on your sites, you can update all your sites all at once via the Hub in 1 click.

    However, you can certainly update manually using FTP if you wish, on each project page, you can find a download link below the install button. This will download the zip file to your computer, you can then unzip it and manually upload the folder to the /wp-content/plugins/folder using FTP. But make sure you actually delete the existing folder before you upload the new folder.

    Hope this helps
