The Basic plan of the Magento 2 WebP Images Extension allows you to convert images to the WebP format using various modes. Yet, if you want to upload WebP images via the admin panel or need the extension to be compatible with the remote storage, you need to upgrade the plan to Plus or Extra. You can use similar steps to upgrade from Plus to Extra.

So, today you'll learn how to upgrade your WebP Images plan.

Upgrade using composer

First of all, you need to remove the extension you currently use:

composer remove magefan/module-webp*

Next, you can proceed with installing an upgraded version of the extension. For that, go to My Account > My Downloads and press the Install via Composer button to get the installation instructions.

Upgrade using archive

If the WebP Images extension was installed via archive, you need to upgrade it the same way. Just download the extension archive from your Magefan account and extract it.

We recommend backing up the extension folder on your server before taking the next step.

Then copy the app folder from the archive to your Magento 2 directory. The new extension files will merge with the existing ones.

Update Magento 2 extension via FTP

Once you copy the files to your Magento root directory, run the following commands:

php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

After you get new options, you'll need to learn how to manage them along with those you already have. Thus, you can check out the WebP Images user guide to learn more tips about the extension configuration.
