Upgrade AliDropship Woo from PHP 7.4 version to PHP 8.1 version without losing your settings..


New Member

Our server was upgraded to PHP 8.1, the website was down, until I disabled AliDropship Woo plugin.

Server was running PHP 7.4.3, my current installation of AliDropship Woo is alidswoo_ion72.zip

So I have the new AliDropship Woo plugin for PHP 8.1

From reading a few other topics, after upgrading to PHP 8.1 version, they lost all their settings.
I don't want to make this mistake, any advice on how to do the upgrade and keep current settings?

Uploaded the new alidswoo_ion81.zip and wordpress is asking if I want to replace current with uploaded?

Unpacking the package…

Installing the plugin…

Destination folder already exists. /home/me/public_html/wp-content/plugins/alidswoo/

This plugin is already installed.​

Thanks in advance

The website was down after I upgraded our server to PHP 8.1
I thought it was because I also switched web server from Apache Only, to Nginx, Vanish, Apache PHP-FPM.

I downloaded the AliDropship Woo for PHP 8.1
Uploaded the plugin .zip manually, replaced current plugin AliDropship Woo for PHP 7.2 or 7.4 and the settings were fine.
