Upgrading to the latest versions

Upgrading Level up! and Level up! Plus to their latest version can be done following these steps.

Upgrading Level up!

Generally, Moodle will notify system administrators that a new version of Level up! is available for them to install. When that is the case, you may be able to upgrade the plugin directly from the Moodle web interface as an administrator. If so, simply follow the prompts.

If you are unable to update directly from the Moodle interface, please following these steps:

  1. Identify and download the latest zip compatible with your Moodle version from the plugin's page on moodle.org.
  2. Replace the folder blocks/xp with the content of the zip file.
  3. When done correctly, you should find a file named version.php in the folder blocks/xp.
  4. Opening the above file should reveal the version downloaded earlier.
  5. If you also need to upgrade Level up! Plus, please skip to the section below.
  6. Visit the admin notifications page to trigger the installation.
    • Navigate to Site administration > Notifications.
    • Or directly visit your.moodle.example.com /admin/index.php.
  7. Follow the Moodle upgrade process.

The upgrade process is quite similar to the installation process, please visit the official Moodle documentation for more information.

Upgrading Level up! Plus

To obtain the latest version of Level up! Plus, please navigate to your download link which was shared by email at the time of purchase. If you no longer have your download link, you can recover it from the recover page. Note that latest version available to you may not be the latest version if your license is no longer valid.

New versions of Level up! Plus often require the latest version of Level up! to be installed, if you haven't upgraded it yet, please follow the steps in the above section to install it.
