There are multiple ways to update or replace your WordPress themes. But we always recommend to keep a backup copy just in case. We confirm the below steps are the most efficient ways to upgrade or replace your theme with the Latest version and it is our standard practice.
- Confirm the Backup
- Use the FTP, login to your host and go to Public_html -> wp-Content -> Your theme folder
Make sure you have the same directory structure on both side.
- You can also try to replace theme theme by giving the theme a different version into the style.css and upload new theme with your WordPress dashboard navigating – Appearance -> Themes
- Sometime you might need to change the page name but if there is an update on the theme and your native theme is the same then it will not be a problem but if it is a complete new theme it shall ask for more work to infrastructure the content.
