  5. Next FTP to your web server and delete the “staff_directory” folder in the /packages directory.
  6. Extract the ZIP archive that you downloaded in step 4 to your local computer.
  7. Upload the “staff_directory” folder to the /packages directory on the server
  8. Open your Concrete CMS site and navigate to the dashboard, Click on the “Extend Concrete” item
  9. You will see Staff_Directory is still listed as the old version
  10. Click on the dashboard menu item “Updated Add-Ons”
