How to get up to date in WHMCS ?

There have two ways to keep yourself up to date in WordPress. One is official or automatic and the second way is manual which will be difficult for some of the users.

The first way, You can update to the latest version of WHMCS using the Automatic Updater. Simply navigate to Utilities > Update WHMCS to begin the update process.

The second way, You can update to the latest version manually or you can roll out too from one version to another but try it at your own risk cause it may conflict some options and features. You should just download the WHMCS latest version from WHMCS official website and then install it.
