In this tutorial you will learn how to update your HTML Template HostBill Integration to support the latest version of HostBill.

Is This Update Required?

Yes, every time HostBill release a new version updates are made to the template files to add new functionality, fix bugs etc. This update will update your HostBill Integration files with the new changes to add full support for the latest version of HostBill.

Will I Loose Customisations Made To The Template?

You shouldn't loose any custimizations as the HTML Template does not modify the HostBill files, instead all edits are made within the HTML Template files which are automatically applied to HostBill without editing required.

How To Update

You will need to follow every step below to update your HostBill Integration.

1. Update HostBill

To begin you will need to update HostBill to the latest version following HostBill documentation.

2. Upload & Replace The HostBill Integration Files

The next step is to upload the latest HostBill Integration version.

Steps To Upload

1. Make a full backup of your HTML/HostBill files & database for safety

2. Download the HostBill Integration files >> Download Guide

3. Extract the ZIP file to your desktop

4. Open the directory within Upload that matches your HostBill version e.g if you have updated to HostBill v8 open:

/upload/hostbill v8/

5. Upload the contents of this directory using an FTP client to:

/hostbill_path/

This will override the old HostBill Integration files used by your template with the latest version.

Ensure that your FTP client does not replace directories and instead adds/overrides the new files within the existing directory. We recommend FileZilla which is free and will work correctly out of the box.

If you have made customisations to any files contained in the ZIP we recommend comparing your version and the updated version so you can re-apply your customisations manually.

3. Re-Apply Header/Footer

The final step is to re-apply the header/footer of your HTML Template to your HostBill integration template. This is a quick and easy process. This step will also ensure that if any changes were made to your header/footer (e.g changes to the menu) since the last update, it will be matched exactly in HostBill.

4. Update Integration CSS Files

All of the CSS overrides used by the HostBill integration are found within the HTML Template.

For this step you will need to:

1. Login to your Zomex account and download the latest version of your HTML Template

2. Extract the ZIP to your desktop

3. Upload the following files:

upload/wp-content/themes/your_theme/libs/css/hostbill.min.css
upload/wp-content/themes/your_theme/libs/css/hostbill.css

To replace the existing within your live install (e.g within public_html/wp-content/themes/your_theme/libs/css/)

This step ensures that you're using the up to date HostBill CSS.
