Core Update from Brittany Williams's blog

Note: Before performing update, please back up your files and database first.

Auto-update

Auto-update is all about clicking a button in admin area and entering your FTP details. We hope to make this feature run smooth on all possible server setups.

Manual update

If autoupdate can't be applied you can try manual core update.

  1. Download Oxwall Update Pack at Oxwall.org/download;
  2. Unpack it to the root folder of your software install;
  3. Finalize update by calling yoursite.com/ow_updates
Note: All custom code modifications made before the update will be lost. We highly recommend changing the code by creating new plugins. If, indeed, you have changed the code, copy all changes before the update and apply them again once the script is updated.Plugin update

Plugin update works pretty much as core update with possible auto- and manual updates. You should try auto-updates unless manual update recommended. Always read release notes from developers for special instructions before trying to update plugins.

Manual Update

  1. Download the latest plugin's version from Oxwall Store;
  2. Unpack plugin's archive;
  3. Upload unpacked plugin's folder into ow_plugins/ directory (overwrite existing old plugin);
  4. Login to Admin Panel and click “Update PLugin DB” button;

Theme update

Currently, theme can be updated manually only. To update theme, follow these steps:

  1. Besure that constant DEV_MODE is disabled in ow_includes/config.php file;
  2. Download your current theme from our store;
  3. Upload this theme to your site to ow_themes folder (overwrite existing theme);
  4. After uploading was complete, enable DEV_MODE in ow_includes/config.php file;
  5. Press F5 on any page of your site and disable DEV_MODE
