    Upgrading a plugin is pretty straightforward, just..

    1. Deactivate the plugin (Click the green circle in Admin -> Plugin Management)
    2. Upload the new plugin version, overwriting the old one
    3. Reactivate the plugin by clicking the circle again.
    If you encounter any problems, try going to Admin -> Maintenance and clearing the 4 caches. Follow that up with a hard refresh (CTRL+F5) and you should be back on track.

    Failing that, please read Troubleshooting Unexpected Errors.

    Note: It's not necessary to uninstall a plugin to upgrade it, but it's generally safe to do so. If you have any problems, leave a note for the plugin developer on the plugin's page in the Plugin Downloads forum.
