Slider Revolution Magento 1.x Extension Documentation

Upgrading the Plugin

1 Download upgraded extension package.

If you're reading this, it means you've successfully unzipped the download zip from CodeCanyon.  At the root folder of this zip, you'll find Extension folder.  Once you've located this zip file, you're ready to upload it to your Magento store and upgrade the extension.

Best practice is to install update on development server first to test new update.
If you do not have development version - do files / database backup before install.

2 Pre upgrade steps.
  • Backup store files and the store database.
  • Disable compilation mode in System > Tools > Compilation.
  • Disable Magento cache - Cache Management
  • Log out from magento admin panel ( if you logged in ). This step is required to reset magento access control cache
3 Upgrade.
  • Unzip extension package
  • Navigation into package/Extension folder
  • Upload content of package/Extension to your magento root directory overwriting existent extension files.
    • package/Magento1/Extension/app >> magento_root/app
    • package/Magento1/Extension/js >> magento_root/js
    • package/Magento1/Extension/lib >> magento_root/lib
    • package/Magento1/Extension/skin >> magento_root/skin
    • and so on
  • Extension does not overwrite any magento core files
  • Set correct file permissions for all the files which you uploaded to your server.
4 Ready.

Now that the extension has been upgraded. You'll see version information at the bottom of your NWDthenes > Revolution Slider page.

5 Possible Caveeats.

If you have default PHP / Nginx settings, you might experience issues with slider import. By default max file size for upload is 2M. To update it you need to:

  • PHP

    Update php.ini

    upload_max_filesize = 100M
    post_max_size = 100M

    Update /etc/nginx/sites-available/yoursite.conf

    client_max_body_size 100m;
