How to Forcefully Update a Plugin in WordPress?

If your WordPress plugin is not working correctly or you want to re-install it even when it is updated to its latest version, without losing data, you can do this without removing the plugin.

1. Login to your WordPress admin dashboard.

2. Under the dashboard menu, hover your mouse over Plugins and then click on Installed Plugins.



3. Locate the plugin you wish to forcefully update and then click on Edit.



4. In the editor, locate the text:
Version: 1.7.2

Then you will only need to change it to:
Version: 1.7.1

Only change the version from a higher to a lower number.



5. Scroll down and click on Update File. Then go back to the Installed Plugins list, and you will see a text like There is a new version of, and you will only need to click on Update now. This will update your plugins files.
