Manually upgrading RCP to the latest version
Updates for Restrict Content Pro will normally appear in your WordPress dashboard, provided your license key is entered and activated. If you need to upgrade the plugin manually, you can do so following these steps:
Install and activate the plugin Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades. This can be installed through your dashboard via Plugins > Add New.
Next, log in to your account on the Restrict Content Pro website and visit your account area page here: https://restrictcontentpro.com/account/
Click the "Purchases" tab, locate your purchase record, and click "View Details and Downloads". You will be taken to your purchase confirmation page. Scroll down to "Products" to find the link to download Restrict Content Pro. Click the link to download the zip file and save it to your computer.
Back in WordPress, go to Plugins > Add new, click "Upload Plugin", and select the zip file you just downloaded. Click "Install Now" to upload the plugin.
Once the new version is installed, you may deactivate and delete the Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades plugin if desired. This plugin automatically handles the process of replacing the old version with the new one when you upload the zip file. It's no longer needed after the new zip file has been uploaded.
