To keep your Post Affiliate Pro up-to-date you have to check for the new version in members area.
You can always download the latest version of PAP4 from there.
- Download the latest version zip file from members area.
- From your server, remove files from affiliates/js folder and from merchants/js folder. This files are new for each installation (update) and have new name, so they will not be replaced by upgrade. If you do not remove them, the application will consume more disk-space by each upgrade.
- Update application files. There are two ways how to do this:
a.) Unzip downloaded distribution file. Then copy the new files over your existing installation - overwrite the files (recommended)
b.) Copy distribution zip file to the PAP4_installation folder. Then go to step 4. Installer will unzip files automatically. In Update files step you will need to enter ftp information (FTP through port 21) for your site as the updater modifies file using ftp. If you are using SFTP connection (port 22), you have to do it "old way" like described in a.)
- After the application files are uploaded, go to the URL
to start the installation wizard. The program will update the installation and database to the newest version.
Changes in templates
It is possible that the latest update of PAP4 contains new version of some template files.
If you made some customizations to the templates, you don't need to be afraid, your changes are not lost.
During the update process, the system is updated to the newest templates from us, but the templates changed by you are saved with name
template_name_******.tpl in the corresponding directory, where ***** is the older version of PAP from which you upgraded to the latest one.
You can simply review the applied changes and apply them in the new version of templates.
