What is the recommended way to update PyroCMS to the latest version?
Created 7 years ago by daviesgeek

I have several sites (WIP, not in production) that are on older versions of PyroCMS. What is the recommended way to bring my sites up to date?

Right now, I'm having to create a new Pyro project, copying over the files into my other projects, and then updating the composer.json file from the new project. Is that the best way to do it? Or is there a better way?

Unless specified from a release post - composer update is enough to bring your version and dependencies up to speed within compatibility.

Version 3.1 is about to hit and it, for example, will have a wee bit of rearranging of override (non-standard) views and config n such to do but very easily and technically won't break your general installation. But those will require you to opt into the change with some modifications of you composer.json file.
