Download a specific plugin version

that’s it!


Another way to download older plugin versions from wordpress.org is by using WP-CLI:

First, you need to know the plugin slug, in this example, I will use the YoastSEO plugin that has a slug wordpress-seo

Then using wpcli first uninstall the current plugin version:

wp plugin delete wordpress-seo

and then install a specific older version of the plugin:

wp plugin install wordpress-seo --version=5.3 --activate
