In this tutorial you will learn how to update your Orbit WHMCS template from V1.5 to V1.6. This update sees a lot of changes so ensure you take a full backup before updating.

3) Upload the modified files

2. Upload the contents of /upload/ your WHMCS root which would be: /whmcs_path/ (e.g /public_html/ or /public_html/clients/) - ensure you're using a FTP program that replaces only the files and not the directories + contents. A great FTP program we recommend is.
