I have installed wordpress on my university server. I have added Generate Press theme to it and it works. I cannot update it however. The site ( https://docs.generatepress.com/article/license-key-activation-issues/ ) advises me to use wp_remote_post function. The problem is I have no idea in where I should run the code (in which file). I am not familiar with php at all. I would really appreciate if someone could help me out.

No, I only have access to this particular wordpress installation. Im a regular linux user without root privileges. Is this an obstacle? If so, is there another way to update GP?May 4, 2017 at 12:35 pm #314016LeoStaffCustomer Support
You might be able to try manual update?

Alright, thanks.May 4, 2017 at 12:50 pm #314029TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
You can contact your actual hosting provider and ask them to make sure cURL is enabled.
When you said you can’t update – what stops you? An error message? Nothing happens at all?May 4, 2017 at 12:53 pm #314034Łukasz Przeniosło
I dont think my university admin will care about me tbh. When I click update nothing happens, no refresh, no message, no anything.May 4, 2017 at 7:30 pm #314158TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Very strange – the server admin would have to look into it.
If that’s not possible then I’m afraid you’re stuck with manual updates. This plugin makes the process easier: https://en-ca.wordpress.org/plugins/easy-theme-and-plugin-upgrades/
