Softaculous Tutorial: How to upgrade a script

The Softaculous developers regularly release new versions of the applications that can be configured via the auto installer. When you access Softaculous you will see the home page. If there are any updates for your installed applications you will see a note on the top of the page. You can click on the note and you will be taken to a new page on which Softaculous will list all outdated software. Below you can see the note on the home page.

IMPORTANT: Before you proceed with the upgrade process make sure you have a full backup of your website! Check out our Softaculous Backup/Restore Tutorial for detailed information on how to Backup (and restore if needed) your website with just few clicks!

On the new page you will see all outdated applications. There are several columns that provide important information about the outdated software. In the Version column you will see the current version of your script and a Blue color button which you need to click on to perform the upgrade.

You will see the last page from the upgrade process. To finish the upgrade click on the Upgrade button which is displayed on the following screenshot. Please note that it is recommended to create a full backup of your website before upgrading it. In the next tutorial will explain how to create and restore backups.
