How do I update the SwiftModders Blesta Theme Installer?

1. Download the latest version of the Theme Installer

Log into your account using the credentials you set up during checkout. Navigate to "My Services"> "Downloads" and select one of your active theme purchases. Once loaded, you can click on the Theme Installer download link.

If you're unable to download any files, this is because you're either using a developer's license or you have an expired license. If you believe this is in error, please open a support request.

2. Unzip the download to your local machine

After downloading the Theme Installer, you will need to unzip the files compressed onto your local machine. You can use many different tools to handle this, and both Windows and Macs have built-in uncompression tools. My preference for Windows machines would WinRAR, but you're free to use the tool you feel most comfortable with.

For more information on how to unzip a file, please read this tutorial on WikiHow.

3. Replace the plugin files in your Blesta installation

Once your ZIP file has been extracted, you can upload the plugin files to your Blesta installation. The best way to do this would be to use your favorite FTP program. I use WinSCP to regularly handle my FTP uploads, but more modern control panels like cPanel and DirectAdmin have File Managers available.

In the Theme Installer folder, look for the "upload" folder. Upload the contents of the "upload" directory, not the folder itself, to the root directory of your Blesta installation (only the contents of the "upload" directory). This will add the necessary plugin files into the appropriate folders so that Blesta will recognize a new plugin is available for activation.

4. Update the Blesta Theme Installer plugin

Notice: It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you backup your Blesta SQL database before installing any plugin.

Once all of the files for the Theme Installer plugin have been replaced, it's time to log in to your Blesta admin account to update the plugin. Navigate to the route for your Blesta admin panel and log in to your account. Click on the "Settings" option in the upper right-hand corner. Under the "Company" tab, click on the "Plugins" option. Locate the "SwiftModders Blesta Theme Installer" plugin and click the "Upgrade" button.

When the update is complete, you will see a message stating it has been completed successfully. If you are presented with an error, please copy the error message and open a support request with your details.

Congrats! You've successfully updated the SwiftModders Blesta Theme Installer plugin.
