Updating Jupiter X theme via FTP

Updated on July 8, 2019

If automatic update doesn’t work for you for some reason, you can always update the theme via FTP. To do this, follow the steps below:

1. Download the theme from ThemeForest.

2. Extract the downloaded .zip file into a folder.

3. Use an FTP client (like FileZilla) to access your host web server.

Note: If you don’t know your FTP credentials, contact your hosting provider support so they can provide them.

4. In the file browser, navigate to /wp-content/themes directory.

5. Drag and drop the extracted theme main folder into the directory.

6. The FTP program will give a warning that there is an existing directory with the same name, choose Replace All.

7. Once done, check the theme version in WordPress admin dashboard.

Note: After updating the theme, it is highly recommended to update the bundled plugins. To learn how, check out this article.
