Which to update 1st? [Edit]

I uninstalled X Theme and Cornerstone…
Reinstalled old ver 4.6.4 X theme and 1.3.3 Cornerstone. Seems to be working… Now to update… which should I update 1st?

Hello @passawayfarm,

Thanks for asking. :slight_smile:

Before updating I would suggest you to take a complete backup of the website. As you are going to update from a old version of X Theme, I suggest you to setup a staging server and test the update process over there. Let’s say any issue comes up, same can be looked at without affecting the live website.

  1. Next, you can first update Cornerstone and then proceed to update X Theme.

I am sharing some relevant resources to help you get started. Please take a look.

Tutorial to setup staging server:


The account I’m dealing with shows next updated is 6.5.0 but no option to update…
My other accounts say next update is 6.5.2 … I don’t get this…

Thank you for the info! :slight_smile:

Hello @passawayfarm,

You should be able to update the X theme in Dashboard > Updates.
Just make sure that you have validated the X theme already or else the update will fail because it will ask you to validate it first.

​To validate the theme properly, please do the following:
1] Please login to your account and assign the license (https://theme.co/apex/licenses). You need to assign the license to your site using this url: https://www.example.com/. You have to make sure that url you just assign is the same as the one you have in your settings, Settings > General > Site Address
2] Go back to X > Validate again, and insert the license code.

And please review the changes that we made on how you are going to validated your X theme because we made a big change in the process. Please check it out here: https://theme.co/apex/forum/t/setup-product-validation/55

Please let us know how it goes.

I know where to update, problem is… it’s not showing update option for X theme… Should I just update cornerstone? then see if X theme update shows up?

So I updated Cornerstone the X Theme update showed up and I installed it! BUT now I’m back to the same problem from every update!!! Nothing Cornerstone works!!!

"Error 404: File Not Found
The requested page is not found. This may happen due to the following reasons:

You typed the address incorrectly, like http://www.example.com/pgae.html instead of http://www.example.com/page.html
Please contact your webmaster if you are not sure what goes wrong.

Just remembered, last time… something to do with the link being wrong but I have WP setup right!!! and some Tech said I had it wrong!!! you need to FIX the X-Theme/Cornerstone Permalink Settings understanding as far as General Settings / WP address VS. Site Address that basically redirects the “site” from website.com/wp to website.com
On Permalink Settings I use [post name] that redirects according to what I have set the [site address too] under settings / general…

Hello @passawayfarm,

As per the latest message, it seems that you have checked the permalinks settings. As the problem is coming up after you have updated the website, please share the login details in secure note for us to take a closer look.
