Updating our files
Although manually updating the plugins should still keep all of your data (events, settings, etc.) intact, it's always a smart idea to back up your data and files before performing any operation like this.
We recommend that all users perform site backups before manually updating their plugins. The Word Press Codex has a great article that will help you out.
In this tutorial, we'll walk through the steps required to manually update The Events Calendar or one of our other plugins using two different methods: Updating the plugin files via FTP and Updating the plugin files via the Word Press Dashboard.To do this, you'll need to have FTP access to your site's hosting account, along with an FTP client.If you've never used FTP before, this how-to guide can walk you through how to use it.So if you haven’t done it before, or are unsure about what you’re doing, please take the time to read the instructions below and those included with the OS download before beginning.If you are still unsure about what you’re doing, please before attempting to update your instrument.
