TO UPDATE THE THEME VIA WP-ADMIN WITH BACKUP:

Download the theme again from the Theme Forest account, where you initially purchased it. The download will be under your buyer account – Downloads. Download only “All files and documentation” , unzip the theme pack and find the wpresidence folder.

– Access your websites FTP and rename previous theme from wpresidence to wpresidence_old in wp-content/themes folder

– Then via wp-admin – themes – Add new wpresidence.zip from latest theme pack (REMEMBER to unzip it first). And Activate it.

– That should be all.

– Next – if you had any special modifications done in the previous theme version you can copy from wpresidence_old backup to new wpresidence folder. But we would strongly recommend to use child theme for changes.
