Update Extension via Composer

In order to update your Magento 2 Base extension via Composer, open the console (SSH terminal) and follow the commands:

  1. In the terminal, switch to your Magento 2 root directory using the following command:
cd /FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_MAGENTO2

where “FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_MAGENTO2” is the path to your Magento 2 folder on your server.

  1. Update your Plumrocket extension to the latest version:
composer update plumrocket/module-plumbase

After running this command, you will be prompted to enter the username and password (skip this step if your credentials were saved during the installation).

In order to find your personal Username and Password to update the extension via Composer, log in to your account at https://plumrocket.com > select “My Account” in the header menu > “My Downloads” tab > find the required Plumrocket extension in the list > press the “Install via Composer” link. Please see the screenshot below.

Step-by-step guide:

  1. Copy the “Username” key from the popup window.
  2. Copy the “Password” key from the popup window.
  1. Run the next four Magento 2 commands:
php bin/magento cache:flush
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy

After running these commands, the extension should be updated successfully. A similar message should be displayed in your console.
