These instructions explain how to update your device data.
The current version of device data and the data that it was published is shown at the bottom of the plugin. If you have purchased a licence key or wish to check for upgraded data follow these instructions.
The 51Degrees Wordpress plugin can be upgraded to use CMS or Premium data in two ways.
- Plugin Download - Download a new plugin from the 51Degrees.mobi web site and upgrade.
- Automatic Upgrade - Paste a licence key into the Plugin an automatically upgrade. This requires the PHP environment to support file updates and outbound web connectivity.
Some servers do not allow file changes or downloads from external websites that our automatic upgrade process depends on. To enable Premium or CMS data on such installations you can download a plugin with extra data manually from this website and upload it to Wordpress manually.
Download the plugin from our downloads page by pasting your licence key into the text box provided.
If the licence key is valid you will be able to download the Wordpress plugin, packaged as a zip file. Before uploading the plugin to your Wordpress site you will need to deactivate and delete your current 51Degrees.mobi plugin in order to avoid possible clashes.
To do this navigate to the plugins menu and deactivate the 51Degrees.mobi plugin. This will then enable the delete option.
Once the previous plugin is deleted you are ready to upload the upgraded plugin. Go to the Wordpress plugin page and and select Add New.
Select Upload from the top of the page. You will then be prompted to provide the location of the plugin. After it is uploaded and activated and you will see 51Degrees.mobi in the left hand menu and when selected additional properties and options.
To update straight from your plugin copy your licence key into the Upgrade Device Data section of the plugin page and select the update button.
The plugin will then attempt to download the latest version of device data and install it automatically.
You can verify that new data has been installed by checking the text under the Device Data section.
As you can see, this plugin is using Premium data from the 4th September 2012.
After the plugin has been upgraded WordPress will no longer automatically inform you when updates are available. Please follow us on Twitter @51Degreesmobi, follow our RSS feed, or check our blog regularly to receive update notifications.
