We are using WPML Multilingual CMS, String Translation, Translation Management and Media Translation. We keep having an issue when we update the plugin in our development environment, the updates do not populate into the other buckets. We are using a development environment that uses a staging, production and development. How can i port over updates without having to manually update the plugin. This happens every time the plug in needs an update on our production bucket. We are using a custom theme.

Hello, thank you for contacting WPML Support!

The site’s key is unique to the site’s domain. If you are frequently moving the database between production, development, and staging, you can avoid re-entering the site-key by setting the site-key in the wp-config.php file.

You can use the steps shown in this article:

You may also try to use symlinks for the plugin's folders but this may affect the purpose of having a development version of the site.

Please let me know if this solves the issue or if you need further details.

Thank you
