Updating ATUM

Updated 1 year ago

You can update ATUM three ways: via the WordPress Updates page, via FTP, or via a ZIP file.

Updating ATUM via the WordPress Updates page

  • From your WordPress Dashboard, go to Updates. All plugins with updates appear here.

  • Select the checkbox for the ATUM plugin.
  • Click Update Plugins.

Updating ATUM via FTP

Automatic updates can sometimes fail for a variety of reasons. If an update does not complete successfully, then you will end up with a broken site.

One way to fix this is to update ATUM via FTP manually. By doing this, you will be able to continue using the latest version of ATUM.

  • First, go to an FTP client such as FileZilla and download and install the client, if you haven’t already.
  • Open the FTP client and log in using the credentials provided by your server hosting provider.

  • Go to /wp-content/plugins.

  • Select the ATUM plugin folder and rename it to anything, such as OLD.

  • Open the file and click Extract. When you extract the installation files, be sure to keep the same folder structure.

  • From the left panel of the FTP client, right-click on the installation files on your computer, and click Upload.

  • Once the upload is complete, go to WordPress and click Refresh on the Plugins page. The ATUM plugin should display.
  • Click Activate to activate ATUM.

Updating ATUM via a ZIP file

You can also use a ZIP file to update ATUM.

  • Log into your WordPress Dashboard.
First, navigate to ATUM Inventory > Settings > General Tab > Now make sure the option “Delete data when uninstalling” is disabled.

  • Go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and locate the ATUM plugin.
  • Click Deactivate.

  • Click Delete.

  • In Plugins, click Add New.

  • Click Upload Plugin.

  • Click Choose File and select the ZIP file containing the updated version of ATUM.
  • Click Activate Plugin.
