Getting the Update
If you are running WHMCS 7.4.2 or later, you can auto update to WHMCS 7.5 directly.
If you are running WHMCS 7.4.1 or earlier, you will first be prompted to auto update to 7.4.2, and following that will see the option to auto update to 7.5.
This one-time two-step auto update process is because WHMCS 7.5 requires the latest version of ionCube loader, and in the 7.4.2 update we introduced a new pre-update check that allows us to verify you have the required ionCube loader version before allowing an auto update to V7.5 to take place.
As always, manual downloads are also being made available for those who wish to upgrade manually. You can get those at the download url below.
