Updating WP Staging Pro

As you know we update WP Staging periodically and improve it with new features all the time.

Note: It’s important to know it is sufficient to update WP Staging on the live site only. Most of the time it does not matter if the version on the staging site is outdated!

So you do you make sure to get updates automatically?

After activating the WP Staging Pro license key in WP Staging > License you will be informed about new updates from your WordPress plugin dashboard. From there you can update automatically the plugin:

If you do not get any update notification at all or if you get the error Download failed: unauthorized use the steps below to fix it!

  1. Go to live site WP Staging > license
  2. Deactivate license key
  3. Activate it again

Now you should be able to update the plugin!

Alternatively, you can download the latest version
manually from your account.

To do so, log in to your accountView Details and Downloads

Then you’ll get the purchase confirmation page where you can download the plugin:

By clicking on wp-staging-pro you’ll download the file which you can upload to WordPress WordPress > Plugins > Add New

Before you upload the file, uninstall completely the old WP Staging Pro plugin from your website.

Note: It’s important to use the latest WP Staging Pro plugin on the live site. It does not matter if the plugin on the staging site is outdated. If you want to update that plugin there as well you have several options:

  • Download the plugin from your account and manually upload it to your staging site at WordPress > Plugins > Add New
  • Deactivate the license key on the live site and activate it again on the staging site. Then do the automatic plugin update at WordPress > Plugins
  • Use the WP Staging update mechanism at WP Staging > sites > update and exclude everything except the folder plugins/wp-staging-pro
