Backup Methods

Solid Backups updates can be made using two different methods:

  • Automatically from the WordPress dashboard (once you have licensed Solid Backups)
  • Manually by downloading the latest Solid Backups zip file from the SolidWP Member Panel.

Automatic Updates

After configuring your Solid Backups Licensing, Solid Backups update notices will be available from the WordPress dashboard.

Manual Updates

To manually update to the latest version of Solid Backups, download the latest Solid Backups zip file from the SolidWP Member Panel and follow the instructions for Installation.


When manually updating, you should first deactivate and then delete the existing version of Solid Backups (usually through the WordPress plugin admin but can be by FTP client or control panel file manager tools or other preferred method), as the manual installation methods will not do this for you automatically and will either fail or may leave you with an indeterminate installation.
