How to Manually Update LifterLMS

In some scenarios, it may be necessary to manually update LifterLMS.

The easiest way to manually update LifterLMS is to delete LifterLMS and re-install it.

Don’t worry, nothing will be lost! All of your LMS content (students progress, lessons, quizzes, courses, memberships, and more) are stored in the WordPress database or WordPress media library. Deleting LifterLMS only deletes the files that make LifterLMS work. When you re-install LifterLMS, everything will still be exactly as you left it.

We do strongly recommend utilizing a backup utility to ensure you can easily rollback changes if anything goes wrong during the process.

  1. Navigate to Plugins -> Installed Plugins
  2. Find LifterLMS and deactivate it
  3. Delete LifterLMS

To reinstall LifterLMS:

  1. Navigate to Plugins -> Add New
  2. Click “Upload”
