Installing an update.

Do I just upload the zip file to update my plugin?

    Hi Jim Harden,

    To update a plugin you can go through the Dashboard | Control Panel | Updates.

    The way you are suggesting is done by downloading the zip file (as you have done), unzipping it on your computer and uploading the contents, typically a single folder, to the folder

    You’ve got a couple of options,

    You can auto update via the WordPress Update Menu,

    You can update via the WPMU DEV Dashboard

    (both will tell you when updates are available)

    or you can download the zip, unzip it on your PC and upload via FTP and overwrite the existing file :slight_smile:

    Thank you both! I think my issue may have been due to the fact that I needed to upgrade to get the update. I ended up deactivating the plugin, then via ftp I named the current version “_old” and uploaded the new version, then activated the plugin again. All is working nicely. Thanks again!

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
