How to Use and Install the GPL Vault Automatic Update Plugin

You can now update your website without the need to manually download the plugin or theme from us.

It’s simple. Download and install our plugin and enter your API Key in the Settings. Any time an update is available, you’ll receive a notification in your WordPress dashboard with the ability to one-click update. It’s faster, smarter and easier.

Please see the short guide below on how to get started:

The first thing you’ll need to do is log into the website and visit your account

https://www.gplvault.com/my-account/

Go to API Downloads in the side menu and click the download link. This will download the GPL Vault Updater plugin:

API Download

Install and activate the plugin on your website.

You will now see a menu item called GPL Vault with 3 sub menus. Plugins, Themes and Settings.

Click Settings and you will see a place to enter the API Master Key and Product ID.

Your API Key and Product ID can be found in your account under the API Keys heading (you will have also received them by email when you subscribed)

API Keys

Enter the details into the boxes. Hit the ‘Save Changes’ button and you should be good to go, as denoted by the green ticks.

API Activated

You will also notice in the plugin settings that there’s a tab called ‘License Deactivation.’ This is in the event that you decide to move the plugin to another site. You can deactivate the API key on that site and then reactivate it on another. You can also do this via the ‘My Account’ page on GPL Vault.

If you have any questions or feedback then please let us know by dropping us an email to [email protected]. We would recommend that you also follow us on either Twitter or Facebook for new product announcements.

Please note that our plugin is not yet multi site compatible.
