If you’ve been asked to update to the development version (e.g. to test out a new feature, or fix – or if you’re just curious and like being at the cutting edge), then here’s how to do it.
Note that this only applies to users of the “free” edition of UpdraftPlus – the development version does not contain any add-ons. You cannot use any add-ons if you are running the development version (unless we specifically send you them).
All your settings will be remembered – you won’t need to re-create them. N.B. The version number in the development version may or may not be the same as the current release version; there is no particular rule about what it will be.
1. De-install your existing install of UpdraftPlus
Go to the “Installed Plugins” page on your WordPress dashboard.
Follow the link to “Deactivate”.
Then scroll back to find the same place again, and this time click “Delete”. Confirm your choice.
2. Download the development version
Just download the zip file from this link to your computer.
3. Install the development version into WordPress
Go to WordPress’s plugin installer, and install the new version (i.e. upload the zip file you just downloaded in the previous step).
Activate it, and you’re done!
