# Updating

Whenever a new version is available, you will receive a notification in the Joomla Extensions Update or WordPress Plugins control panel. Within it, you can easily update with a one-click action.

Before being able to update the Premium version, you will have to set your ZOOlanders Download ID.

Don't upload by FTP

Even if technically possible, we strongly discourage this method as update scripts will be omitted, resulting in unexpected outcomes.

TIP

You can alternatively update manually by downloading the latest package version from the Downloads section and installing it over using the Joomla Installer control panel.

# Download ID

A ZOOlanders Download ID is an alphanumeric code created in the ZOOlanders Download IDs section that is required to update the Premium version. If you are using the Free version you can skip these steps.

Download ID

Once you have created and copied a Download ID you are ready to set it in your site. Note that you can create as many IDs as necessary.

# Joomla

In the Joomla Plugins Control Panel find the ZOOlanders Installer plugin, access its settings, and paste the Download ID into the field.
