Public Ticket #1671881
Full Version


  • ahenkel started the conversation

    I had the Lite version of wpDataTables installed, then purchased the full version. I don't want to lose the tables I've already built by uninstalling lite and reinstalling the full version. 

    Is there a way to upgrade the lite plugin directly so I don't lose my table data?

    Hi ahenkel,
    Thank you for your purchase.

    My suggestion is to update the plugin manually by following this steps:

    1.) Download zip from this link

    2.) Use FTP to open /yourwordpressfolder/wp-content/plugins

    3.) Delete existing wpdatatables folder(Lite version).

    4.) Upload previously downloaded wpdatatables folder through FTP to plugins folder (unzip it)

    5.)  Go to WP-admin panel, open Plugins section.

    6.) Deactivate wpDataTables, and then activate it again.

    7.) Clear server and browser cache

    IMPORTANT: Do NOT delete the old version from WP-admin (by clicking “Delete” in the plugins page) if you don’t want to lose all your tables!
