Manually updating the Instagram Feed plugin

If you’re experiencing an issue updating the plugin via your WordPress Plugins page then you can manually update the Instagram Feed plugin in one of two ways.

Uninstall and Reinstall

  1. On the plugin’s Settings page, check the option which says ‘Preserve Settings when plugin is removed’
  2. Uninstall the plugin
  3. Download the latest version of the Instagram Feed plugin from your Account
  4. Upload it via your WordPress Plugins page by clicking on ‘Add New’ > ‘Upload Plugin’

Replace the files via FTP

If you have FTP access to your website then you can update the plugin by simply replacing the old plugin files with the new files:

  1. Download the latest version of the plugin from your Account and unzip the file
  2. Use your FTP client to log into your site and locate the plugin files. These are usually in wp-content/plugins/instagram-feed-pro
  3. Upload and replace the files
