Upgrade from Bookly Lite to Bookly

If you’ve already got Bookly Lite installed and would like to upgrade to the full version of the plugin, follow the steps below.

 How to Upgrade

  1. Purchase Bookly here.
  2. In Bookly Settings, uncheck "Delete all data on uninstall" (enabled by default).
  3. To install as a new plugin, go to your WordPress dashboard, and in Plugins, click Add New and Upload. Select the file from the downloaded archive and click Install Now.
  4. Activate Bookly Appointments in Installed Plugins.
  5. Remove Bookly Lite through FTP
    Do not remove Lite via standard WordPress tools as doing that has led to lost or corrupt data in the past.
  6. After successful installation, go to Bookly menu > Settings > Purchase Code and enter your purchase code in the appropriate field to have access to free updates of Bookly. Read here how to find your purchase code.
