How to upgrade EspoCRM¶
Upgrade from CLI¶
Available from version 5.6.0.
This is the most preferable way to upgrade.
Command to run:
php command.php upgrade
This will check the next available version, download it and install. Once upgrade is complete it will prompt to run the command again, if a newer version is available.
Note: Upgrading process may take a while. Do not close the terminal until it's finished.
- Make a backup before upgrading.
- Disable cron (at Administration > Settings) before upgrading. Enable it back after upgrade is finished.
- Enable Maintenance Mode (at Administration > Settings) before upgrading. Disable after upgrade is finished.
- Make sure you have free disk space on the server.
Available parameters (only for advanced users):
-y− run w/o user confirmation
-s− run an upgrade in a single process
--file="EspoCRM-upgrade.zip"− install a specific upgrade package (path to file)
Example of using parameters:
php command.php upgrade -y --file="EspoCRM-upgrade.zip"
