update Wordpress Plugin Advanced Custom Fields PRO

Just installed an new Wordpress theme, it requires plugin [Advanced Custom Fields PRO]

After automatic installation, the Wordpress installed the Version 5.5.

Then it pop message about an update version 5.6.1 available only for the paid user.

I found it is open public on github:


    1. First I backup the version 5.5 plugin:

cp -r /var/www/wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-fields-pro/ ~/acf_55/

    1. Then download the latest release:

wget https://github.com/wp-premium/advanced-custom-fields-pro/archive/5.6.1.tar.gz
tar xzvf 5.6.1.tar.gz

  1. Overwrite the download to the existing plugin files:
    dry-run to make sure before the changes:
    rsync -avhn ./advanced-custom-fields-pro-5.6.1/* /var/www/public/wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-fields-pro/

    Final run overwrite:

rsync -avh ./advanced-custom-fields-pro-5.6.1/* /var/www/public/wp-content/plugins/advanced-custom-fields-pro/

PS: I switch my website to HHVM+SQLite now.

I will be really appreciate if you can give me some feedback about the changes like: load time, speed ...
