There are two ways to upgrade WP Auctions. Before upgrading make sure you have the latest version by logging into your account area and downloading from the WP Auctions product area.

Due to various server configurations we cannot guarantee that upgrading will leave your auctions intact. We recommend you wait till your auctions are over, end manually or deleted before upgrading. If you have to upgrade due to an error which was fixed please inform your bidders that the auction will be closed and re-opened again.

Upgrade via WordPress backend

  1. De-activate and delete the plugin from your Plugins area. This will not delete your auctions or bids from the database.
  2. Upload the latest version from the plugins backend upload area.
  3. Activate the plugin.

Upgrade via FTP

  1. Simply overwrite the updated files with your FTP client. We’ll usually let you know which files to update so you don’t have to upload everything.
  2. Refresh the WP Auctions plugin page.
  1. Download the file to your computer.
  2. Upload the file via the “Plugins > Add New > Upload” page.
  3. Activate the plugin.
  4. Configure your settings and start adding your first auction.
  1. Unzip the downloaded file to a primary folder called “wp-auctions” on your computer.
  2. Using your favorite FTP client, like FileZilla, navigate to your wp-content/plugins/ directory on your server.
  3. Upload the entire wp-auctions/ folder to the plugins directory.
  4. Go to your Plugins admin area and activate the plugin.
  5. Configure your settings and start adding your first auction.
