Updating Domain Mapping Manually

How do I manually update this plugin? I overwrote it in FTP and that didn't work. What am I doing wrong?

    Hi @Robert,

    Thank you for your thread, hope you're doing well today.

    # Now You will see in the /domain-mapping/ folder there is a file called sunrise.php. You need to move that (move, not copy) to the /wp-content/ folder.

    So the path to that file will be:


    # Then, you just need crack open your wp-config.php file located within the root of your WordPress installation. On a cPanel server that path might be:


    You will have to enter the following line:

    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

    You can pop that right under the WP_DEBUG option, so like this:

    define('WP_DEBUG', false);
    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

    If for some reason you don’t have the WP_DEBUG line, then providing it is just above the following code comment it should work well:

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    Hope above information helps you, let me know the update.

    Yes, I have that installed. However, it just says "Download Update" instead of automatically update. Then that takes me to the website and says Install and I click that and it doesn't do anything. I've installed and updated several other plugins from the Dashboard plugin, though.

    Hey there.

    I wonder if you have any cache plugins running?

    I've just ran an update on my own site, It all seems good for me.

    If you're still getting this then can you please send in:

    - Mark to my attention - ATTN: Timothy Bowers
    - Link back to this thread
    - Include admin/network access
    - Include FTP
    - Include any relevant URLS for your site

    On the contact form, select "I have a different question", this ensures it comes through and gets assigned to me.


    And I'll take a look.

Thank NAME, for their help.
