Updating Hello Retail module - PrestaShop
In the cases where you are using Hello Retail with your PrestaShop platform and you have installed the Hello Retail module that automates a lot of the setup and daily processes, it is a good idea to perform an update.
This serves for the purpose if we encounter bugs or update the Hello Retail's services, the module will also be updated.
Updating the plugin is simply a process of uninstalling the old version and installing the new one.
Steps - Update the Hello Retail Module
- To uninstall the old version, login to your PrestaShop account.
On the dashboard view, navigate to the left-hand side menu. Navigate to Modules and then from the drop-down menu, click on Modules and Services. You will then be shown a list of the installed modules.
In the list of modules, you will see the Hello Retail module. However, please be aware that the name of the module is addwish business.
Click on the Configure button and then from the drop-down menu click on the Uninstall button.
Now the module has been deleted so you can simply install the new module plugin as you would do a fresh install.
