DMS install issue

Recommended Posts

Frederic

Hi there, i am trying to update to DMS 1.1.1 but two issues:

1. tried to update from Wordpress update page - DMS v1.1.1 is available. You should update now. - but link doesn't respond

2. downloaded latest DMS from my account and loaded but installation failed:

'Unpacking the package…

Installing the theme…

Destination folder already exists. /home/globalav/public_html/wp-content/themes/dms/

Theme install failed.'

any suggestion?

Many thanks in anticipation! :-)

Hi, since you downloaded the latest version, you can unzip it to your desktop.  You should have a new dms folder on the desktop.

 

FTP into your site. Navigate to wp-content/themes and find the dms folder there.  Delete it. Don't worry about losing anything. All settings are stored elsewhere.

 

Once the old folder is deleted, upload the new dms folder from the desktop. That will upgrade the site to the latest version.  You can check it by browsing to Dashboard > Appearance > Themes.

Done - many thanks, but i had to upload the zip file in cpanel - it would not accept the unziped folder.

Anyway, many thanks for your support!

If you're uploading you have to extract the zip file first.
