Hi, you can simply replace “hide_my_wp” folder and files in /wp-content/plugins/ directory with the latest version of “hide_my_wp” using FTP.
But before updating, we recommend you to take backup of the current settings by clicking on “export current settings” button in HMWP start tab and save the settings in a text file, so that if in case anything goes wrong you can always import these settings again.
I did exactly as you said,
it seems I don’t have any problem and everything works fine (I checked the setting and all of them were like before updating) (I didn’t deactivate the plugin and replace new files using my host control panel)
but, this text shows up right after I update HMWP : It seems there is no writable htaccess file in your WP directory. If you use Apache (and not Nginx or IIS) please change permission of .htaccess file.
if I deactivate the plugin, and then activate it, will I lose the settings and I should apply the settings again or not?
(after updating to new version my website goes from full-width theme to box theme!! I want to know if it’s because of HMWP newest version or not)
