Beta releases and old versions

If you want to try a beta release of Redirection, or want to use an older version that you’ve downloaded from, then you can follow these steps:

  1. Download the beta (or old version) as a zip file
  2. Unzip the file on your computer
  3. Using whatever mechanism you use to access your site’s directory contents (i.e. FTP, CPanel etc) navigate to the wp-content/plugins directory
  4. Rename the existing redirection directory to redirection.old
  5. Upload the unzipped redirection folder to wp-content/plugins
  6. Confirm that Redirection is still functioning
  7. Delete redirection.old

If you follow these steps then no data will be lost.

Do not delete the old plugin from your plugins page! This will delete all data associated with the plugin.

Beta versions can be found on the Redirection Github release page.
