    Hi,
    I was searching for a way to upgrade my Real Estate Theme from version 8.9.6 to version 9 but I could not found any.
    What I understand no plugin to the update automatically.
    So due to this, I would like to know if you can tell us how to manually do it.
    I have access to PHPMyadmin and will be able to change the information in the database.
    Thanks in advance.

    V8 and V9 run off completely different CSS frameworks, so there is no ‘update’ since it’s not possible to go through all the old child themes and re-do them.

    WordPress database content has always remained the same, so this will be not be affected when doing updates.

    The easiest way to start using V9 is to simply login to the WP admin -> themes -> upload and activate the new theme.

    Then under the theme configuration -> save the settings page.

    Be-aware you’ll need to use a new design.

    NOTE. I strongly recommend you backup your website first.

    I activated new theme but it seems that it requested for me to activate the license again.
    But it seems the theme could not detect my license properly.

    This step above should solve that;

    “Then under the theme configuration -> save the settings page.”
