Upgrade Guide

Upgrading to 3.7.0 From 3.6

Estimated Upgrade Time: 10 - 15 Minutes

We attempt to document every possible change. Since some of these changes are in obscure parts of the API only a portion of these changes may actually affect your application.

Before continuing please refer to the release notes to see more information on what has been changed.

Updating Dependencies

Update your composer.json file to match the 3.7 branch core addons and dependencies: https://github.com/pyrocms/pyrocms/blob/3.7/composer.json#L24-L84

Of course, don't forget to examine any additional addons and packages consumed by your application and verify you are using the proper version for PyroCMS 3.7 support.

Private Storage Adapter

The new Private Storage Adapter extension has replaced the Local storage adapter due to general safety and aligning with future features around deployment automation.

You will likely want to keep the Local Storage Adapter when upgrading existing installations. Simply add the following to your composer.json in the require section after mirroring the 3.7 composer.json:

"anomaly/local_storage_adapter-extension": "~2.1.0",

Update Configuration

Update your configuration according to the following source files:

Disable Package Discovery for Laravel

Disable package discovery by appending your composer.json file: https://github.com/pyrocms/pyrocms/blob/3.7/composer.json#L127-L131

Composer Update

Now that the composer.json file has been brought up to speed we can let composer update our dependencies:

composer update

Install Search Module

Install the new Search module to fully replace the old TNT search driver.

php artisan addon:install search

Run Migrations

Migrate the core as well as all installed addons:

php artisan migrate --path=vendor/anomaly/streams-platform/migrations/application
php artisan migrate --all-addons


If your site uses a messages.twig view partial then be sure to replace the message_get functions with message_pull.

Clean Up

It's a good idea to freshen up the entire system's caching and performance utilities:

php artisan refresh

Define Automatic Overrides

PyroCMS will no longer look through all addons for overridden views. You must define them in your theme or other addon using the $overrides property or by using the ViewOverrides collection directly.
