Updating an app

When you open cpanel, usually, at the bottom you will notice a yellow bar indicating that an update for one of your apps is available.

Follow these steps to update the app.

  • Click on the link or on the Softaculous button in cPanel.
  • A list of your apps will be displayed, with a set of button on the right to manage them.
  • Click on the blue arrows next to the version number of the app you want to upgrade.
  • On the upgrade page, you can select if you would like to have a backup of the existing site, before upgrade.*See Note
  • Once your account is upgraded, you will get a confirmation page.

*NOTE: You will need enough free space in your account, to accomodate the backup. 
Do not select the backup option if you have less than 30% free space.
Storing backups takes up a lot of space instantly. Remember to remove unwanted backups, or your account may get full.
