Hello. Where are the instructions to update the Propulsion Theme? I have checked the support forum and downloaded the documentation for the new release and the most I can find is “update the theme”. Do I need to install the new version on top of the existing theme, only update certain files? Please clarify. Thanks.
I tried installing it on top of the current theme and it failed since the folder already existed.
Typically that is the route you would take but it sounds like your server has the permissions on the theme folder set up so that you can not overwrite them. If you aren’t familiar with changing folder permissions, typically your server host can assist you with that. Setting the wp-content/themes folders to 755 should allow you to update via the wordpress admin and uploading the theme zip.
You can also update the theme files by connecting to your server via FTP. You just navigate to the themes folder inside wp-content and then replace the “propulsion” folder with the unzipped theme folder. Alternatively you can just replace those files and folders that were updated in since your version. You can find those in the version.rtf you get in the main package from themeforest.
Thanks Devin. I contacted my server host and they renamed the destination folder so the new version would be installed.
