How to Configure the BackupBuddy Licensing Settings
In this section of the guide to the BackupBuddy plugin, we will take a look at the Licensing area where a list of your iThemes Licenses are displayed.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) From the left-hand sidebar of the Dashboard, navigate to BackupBuddy -> Settings -> Licensing to be automatically forwarded to the Settings -> iThemes Licensing area.
For our example, a message displays indicating that the BackupBuddy product has not been licensed.
Step 3) To correct this issue, enter your iThemes Username and iThemes Password.
|These login credentials are the same Username and Password generated when you created an iThemes Account.|
Step 4) Ensure there is a checkmark for each product to license.
Step 5) Click the License Products button to complete this process.
If successful, the page should display as follows:
Quick Release Updates
Step 6) If you want to Enable quick release updates place a checkmark in this checkbox to activate this feature.
|Enabling this feature allows quick releases to be available to the automatic update system. Using this option is only recommended if support has requested that you enable it in order to receive a quick release. You should disable this option at a later time after confirming that the quick release solves the issue for you.|
For this example, this field was left unchecked.
Step 7) Click the Save Settings button to save any changes.
