Force Easy Digital Downloads Updater to Check for Updates

By default, Easy Digital Downloads Updater caches the result of the update check for several hours. If you want to force EDD to check for updates again, you can use this SQL statement to delete the cached result:

DELETE FROM `my_wp_db`.`wp_options` WHERE `option_name` = '_site_transient_update_plugins';
DELETE FROM `my_wp_db`.`wp_options` WHERE `option_name` LIKE 'edd_sl_%';

Replace my_wp_db by your WordPress database name and customize wp_options to match your table prefix settings.
