Updating the module

If you have an existing installation of the Form Builder module for WHMCS and you’ve obtained a newer version of the module, follow the steps below to upgrade:

  1. Backup Your Existing Installation:
    • Before proceeding with the upgrade, it’s essential to create a backup of your existing Form Builder module files and your WHMCS database. This ensures that you can revert to the previous version if needed.
  2. Obtain the New Version:
    • Download the latest version of the Form Builder module. You should receive a zip file named “form-builder-x.x.x.zip” (or a similar version number) after purchase.
  3. Extract the Module Files:
    • Extract the contents of the downloaded zip file to your local computer.
  4. Connect to Your Server via FTP:
    • Use an FTP client (e.g., FileZilla, WinSCP) to connect to your WHMCS server using your FTP credentials.
  5. Navigate to WHMCS Root Directory:
    • In the FTP client, navigate to the root directory where your WHMCS installation is located.
  6. Replace the Existing Module Files:
    • Locate the “modules” directory within the WHMCS root directory.
    • Open the “modules/addons/” directory.
    • Replace the existing “form-builder” folder with the updated one from the extracted files.
  7. Update the Module Version:
    • Log in to your WHMCS admin area.
    • Go to “Setup” -> “Addon Modules” and locate “Form Builder” in the list.
    • Check the “Version” column and verify that it matches the new version you installed.
    • If necessary, click the “Configure” button next to “Form Builder” and update the version number to match the new version.
  8. Testing the Upgrade:
    • After completing the upgrade, it’s crucial to thoroughly test the functionality of the Form Builder module.
    • Create and submit test forms to ensure that all features and integrations are working as expected.
