How To Update WHMCS Module
|Read the below article carefully as it contains crucial information on how to update any of ModuelsGarden modules for WHMCS. |
Follow the steps one by one to complete successfully the module update and avoid losing data or any other unexpected issues.
Please read the whole article first and then go on with a safe update.
|1. Start with making a backup copy of your WHMCS files and database.|
This step is crucial as it will let you avoid losing any data in case of unexpected update failure or other issues.
|2. Download the latest version of the module from our client area.|
|3. Remove all the files of the previous module's version from the WHMCS root directory (except the license.php file).|
Only in this way all the old and useless hooks will be properly deleted but the module current configuration settings will remain untouched as they are stored in the base.
|4. Upload and extract the new files into your WHMCS root directory.|
|5. This step is mandatory only in a few cases due to the changes in the packaging system.
Proceed to the module's location and remove the 'license.php' file.
|6. Next, move to '/your_whmcs/template_c/' directory and delete all the files that are inside it except the index.php file.|
This action will remove cache, which will prevent WHMCS from storing obsolete parts of the module and read the new version correctly.
|7. It is adviced to move to the module's documentation and confirm that there are no additional steps required in the Update Instruction section.|
|8. Addon Modules Only: Log in to your WHMCS admin area and proceed to the updated module addon.|
Important: We do not recommend deactivating the old version of the module addon before updating the new one.
|Once the instructions are carried out, the module update is ready and correct.|
|In case of some modules, for example SMS Center For WHMCS, additional steps are required.
Please move to the module's documentation page and check whether there are any specific actions required.
