The new version is not compatible with the previous versions. You can request data migration from the support page.
There are two types of updates, those that exclusively affect files and those that affect files and databases.
For updates that affect files we only have to unzip the application in the directory except for the .env file.
For updates that affect files and databases, the previous step must be done, but the following command must also be executed by SSH.
php artisan install:update
ALWAYS, before updating, you must make a backup copy of the database and files.
In case of error, you would only have to restore the database to the backup made and put back the files that have been saved in this copy.
The application is updated every seven days if an error or bug is detected.
The application adds new functionalities very frequently, but there are no fixed dates. You can request changes or suggestions in the following form:
