Upgrading from 1.3.x to 2.0

Steps for Upgrading Profile Builder 1.3.x to 2.0

You will be able to update to 2.0 without losing any existing information or settings.

However, we won’t offer version 2.0 as an automatic update for 1.3.x.

The main reason is that in 2.0, because of the restructuring we had to drop some of the filters from 1.3.x, therefore some of the plugin customizations may not work in 2.0.
Most of the custom functionality that was added through filters in 1.3 can now be easily achieved using the UI of 2.0.

You will have to manually upgrade to Profile Builder 2.0 following the steps below:
Important Note: Make sure to first create a full database backup.

Steps to Manually Upgrade from 1.3.x to 2.0

  • Access your account page and download the Profile Builder 2.0 zip file
  • Unzip the plugin files
  • (Via FTP) Delete the existing profile-builder-pro folder from the plugins folder on your server (which contains Profile Builder version 1.3.x files).
  • (Via FTP) Copy the new profile-builder-pro folder (containing Profile Builder 2.0 unzipped files) to your plugins directory

This way, all your Profile Builder 1.3.x settings and data will be now recognized by version 2.0.
