The Basic plan of the Optimized Magento 2 Theme gives you plenty of opportunities. Yet there are some other features your store can benefit from. So, if you want to use the best SEO practices, a better checkout page and many more advanced features, you need to upgrade the plan to Plus.

So, today you'll learn how to upgrade your Optimized Theme plan.

Upgrade using composer

First, you need to remove the theme you currently use:

composer remove magefan/theme-frontend-optimized*

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

Upgrade using archive

If you previously installed the Optimized Theme via archive, you need to upgrade it the same way. Just download the theme archive from your Magefan account and extract it.

We recommend backing up the theme folder on your server before moving to the next step.

Then copy the app folder from the archive to your Magento 2 directory. The new theme 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

Once you upgrade your Optimized Theme plan, you'll have a chance to not only change the colour settings but also use all the other options this plan comes with.
