Updating Plugins

We will be constantly updating our plugin to add new features and/or fix existing bugs if any. So it’s important for you to keep our plugin to its latest version.

  • How to Update

    To update our plugin, click on “Plugins” under your WordPress Admin then locate our “Prevent Direcr Access Gold”, you will see the notification below when there is a new version of our plugin. Simply click on “update now” to get our latest version.

    In case you’ve never seen the update notification for a while, please click on “Check for updates”.

    The update will not delete any existing data and settings.

    Please note that although we’ve always done rigorous testing before deployment, it’s highly recommended that you perform a full backup of your WordPress website including your files and database before applying any updates.

    Automatic Update is Unavailable

    Since PDA Gold version 3.3.2, there are some possible cases where you get an “Update Unavailable” error message as the image below.

    Invalid Site URL

    Typically, you must activate, i.e. enter a valid license key for our plugin to work on your site.

    When you migrate your website to a different domain, e.g. from a staging environment to a live site, your site URL is not activated. That is the reason why when you update the plugin on the live site, you will receive the warning message above.

    You need to upgrade the PDA Gold license plan to use our plugins on more sites or contact us if you have any other questions.

    Expired License

    If you get our annual subscription license, it will be auto-renewed every year for continued updates and support. In case you cancel your subscription, you can continue using and receiving updates as normal until your license key expires.

    You will need to renew or re-purchase our plugin in order to retain access to plugin updates.

    Limitation: If you keep receiving the “Update Unavailable” error message while your license key is active and your site URL is registered, please try clicking the “Check for Update” button again. If it still doesn’t work, please contact us for further support.

    Disabled License

    Your license becomes disabled when your refund request is granted or you violate our terms of use. This means you can no longer use the plugin.

    In this case, you can choose to either remove our plugin completely from your site or get a new license to continue using it.

    Nulled License

    If you receive that error message during the updates, it’s because you are using a nulled version of our PDA Gold plugin.

    Please remove it from your site and get a legitimate one.

    Otherwise, you will not get any updates and support from us. Not to mention that it’s risky to download pirated plugins through unofficial sources, as you’re exposing yourself to invisible viruses and all kinds of malicious code.
