How to download updated plugin?

Jimmy J. asked 8 years ago

                                        How do I download the updated WPI plugin version?  Or does it update automatically in Wordpress?  Thank you.

You can go into your list of plugins, press “check for update” and then “update”

The plugin needs to be activated, then in the Plugins list click Check for Updates then scroll to the WPI Performance Plugin and click ‘Update’.

You can also do this from the Dashboard->Updates section (plugin needs to be activated though).

Alternatively, download the latest version from your account orders page and upload using FTP. Make sure to visit the settings page if using this technique or deactivate/activate the plugin to get the new indexes.

Yeah sorry – I’ve run out of time to check this – I will do it in the morning.

Thanks. I see in my error logs you were able to replicate the one of concern (“Specified key was too long…”).

Cool – loging in now to check

I just now answered with an “only me & admin” message, with sign in information.

Can you invite me as admin please so I can review and fix?

The plug-in *was* activated when I tried. This is another reason I believe it isn’t working correctly on my site (in addition to the DB error upon install, see my unresolved thread).

Check for update only works if the plugin is activated. It’s not quite standard WP update mechanism, but it simulates it.

FYI, the check for for update procedure did not work for me. When I checked WP reported the plug in was up to date. Downloading the new version and FTPing worked. I had to delete the 2.5 version as my server failed to install the new version with the plugin folders already existing.
