How to update plugins wordpress manually

WordPress is a popular content management system (CMS) that allows you to create a website or blog from scratch, or to update an existing website. In this article, we will show you how to update plugins manually using WordPress’s built-in editor.

What you need

First, you’ll need to install the WP plugin update manager (PUM). Then, go to the Plugins screen in your WordPress admin area and identify all of the plugins you want to update. Click on the “Update Options” button next to each plugin, and set the “Update Mode” to “Manual.” Finally, click on the “Update Plugins” button.

How to do it

If the plugin is not installed, WordPress will prompt you to install it before proceeding. If you already have the plugin installed, just click on it to open its settings and then click on the Update button.
