Although the Basic plan of the Magento 2 Blog is packed with a multitude of handy features, there are still more advanced options for the growth of your blog. Thus, if you want to get the most out of the post creation and management, you need to upgrade the plan to Plus or Extra. The same guide will work if you want to move from Plus to Extra.

So, in this article, you'll learn how to upgrade your Blog plan. 

Note: if you've already purchased a Basic or Plus plan, contact our team for a custom discount.

Upgrade using composer

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

composer remove magefan/module-blog*

The next step is to install an upgraded version of the extension. In order to do that, go to My Account > My Downloads and click on the Install via Composer button to find the installation instructions.

Upgrade using archive

If you installed Blog via archive, you need to upgrade it the same way. Simply go to your Magefan account, download the extension archive and extract it.

We recommend creating a backup of the extension folder on your server before going further.

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

Update Magento 2 extension via FTP

After 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

New options will certainly prove to be useful for creating an engaging blog. So, once you upgrade refer to the blog user guide to explore new features.
