Updating the plugin to a newer version

We try to take into account all the situations when creating a new edition, but it is impossible to guess all the various options.  When performing an update, we recommend the following:

Important!  Do not perform a live update of the plugin when you have an active raffle going on without following the steps below and thorough testing and backups.

  • Setup a staging or development site.  You will need this to test.
  • Maintain full backups of the site and database
  • On the staging site, update the plugin
  • You may need to deactivate and activate the plugin to reinitialize the database fields
  • Check the functionality and then process several new orders.
  • Check for duplicate tickets and any anomalies.

After you have thoroughly tested all aspects, then you can update the plugin on the live site.
