How to update BackupBuddy WordPress Backup Plugin

Updating BackupBuddy can be achieved using two different methods:

Method 1: Automatic Update

Once you have a licensed BackupBuddy automatic updates can be done from the WordPress dashboard

BackupBuddy update notices will be available from the WordPress dashboard.

Method 2: Manual Update

When manually updating, you should first deactivate and then delete the existing version of BackupBuddy (usually through the WordPress plugin admin, but this can also be done via FTP client, control panel file manager tools, or other preferred methods), as the manual installation methods will not do this for you automatically and will either fail or leave you with an indeterminate installation.
