Slider Revolution Magento 2.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.
3 Upload updates.
  • Unzip extension package
  • Navigate into package/Magento2/Extension folder
  • Upload content of package/Magento2/Extension to your magento root directory overwriting existent extension files.
    • package/Magento2/Extension/app >> magento_root/app
  • Extension does not overwrite any magento core files
  • Set correct file permissions for all the files which you uploaded to your server.
4 Installation of Updates.

Login with SSH to your server and run the following commands:

  1. Upgrade extension module:
    php /magento2path/bin/magento setup:upgrade
  2. If you are in production mode (compilation enabled) need to run compilation:
    php /magento2path/bin/magento setup:di:compile
  3. Deploy static content:
    php /magento2path/bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
  4. Clean cache:
    php /magento2path/bin/magento cache:clean
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;
