When WPPacks release a new update for WordPress Portal, you will need to update your current active version of the plugin to the most recent version to get all updates added to your plugin. Here we will guide you on how to update the plugin manually if you already have it installed before on your website.
Please make a backup of your website and database before start updating any plugin to help you get back to your stable version if something happen through the update process.
1- Deactivate current version
From your WordPress admin dashboard, go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and deactivate WordPress Portal then delete it from your website by clicking the “Delete” button after deactivation complete.
2- Download the updated version
Go to your WPPacks account page and from the downloads section, download the latest updated version of WordPress Portal to your computer.
3- Install WordPress Portal
Go to your WordPress website and install the new downloaded WordPress Portal plugin by going to “Plugins > Add New” and then click Upload
After uploads complete, Activate your WordPress Portal plugin and follow the other steps to deploy the updates.
4- Flush Account Options
After activation complete, go to your WordPress Portal and login as admin using your admin email and password. Then go to “Settings > Account Options” and just flush it by clicking “Save” without doing any changes.
5- Flush SMTP Options
Updating the plugin will overwrite the SMTP settings that you’ve sent before, so you just need to flush it again but going to “Settings > SMTP Options” and just click “Save” without doing any changes to your settings at all.
6- Purge App Cache
Finally, you just need to purge the WordPress Portal cache from your WordPress admin dashboard. Got to WordPress admin dashboard and from the main navigation go to the “WordPress Portal” page and click on the “Purge Cache” button.
That is all. You are good to go now and updates should be deployed.
