I have a new version of a plug-in on my computer in a zip format. I need to FTP (I use filezilla) this update, and overwrite the existing files.
I logged into ftp, got to the site, wp-contents, plug-ins, to the correct one.
So, I initially transferred over the entire zipped file right over this plug-in, and it added the new file name to the plug-in, but did not update it.
I deleted that.
I thought I should have upzipped it first, so I did so, and then transferred the whole unzipped file (not each piece) right over the existing plug-in.
Still, no luck, the file is not updating in my wordpress dashboard, I am still on the old version.
Am I missing something here?
