We continuously update and improve WP STAGING, so we release new versions periodically all the time. As a result, you will get periodic update notifications in your production and your staging site’s admin dashboard.
As long as you use only the cloning and pushing features, updating the WP STAGING on the staging site is unnecessary.
If you use any of the backup features, we recommend that you constantly update WP STAGING on the staging site as well.
If you want to update WP STAGING automatically on the staging and production sites, you need at least a license key for two websites.
The other option is to update WP STAGING manually on the staging site. Both options are explained in this article.
Update WP STAGING | PRO Automatically
How do you make sure to get WP STAGING | PRO updates automatically?
After activating the WP STAGING | PRO license key under WP STAGING > License, we will inform you about new updates in your WordPress plugin dashboard. From there, you can update the plugin automatically:
If you do not get any update notification and get the error, Download failed: unauthorized, use the steps below to fix it!

Now you should be able to update the plugin!
Download & Update WP STAGING | PRO Manually
If you can not update WP STAGING | PRO automatically, or you need to install the latest version from scratch on another website or can download the newest release from your account.

You have three options to update WP STAGING:
- Purchase a plan with more than two active sites and activate the WP STAGING license key on the staging site through Staging Site > WP Staging > Licenses. Then you can do an automatic plugin update via Staging Site > Plugins.
- Download the plugin from your account and manually upload it to your staging site through WordPress > Plugins > Add New.
- Use the WP STAGING update function on WP STAGING > Sites > Action > UPDATE and exclude all tables and all files except the folder.
