TYPEMILL automatically checks the version of your system, of your themes and of your plugins. If anything is not up to date anymore, then TYPEMILL will add an update banner in the settings area.

Minor Update

To update TYPEMILL, simply download the latest version of TYPEMILL from the TYPEMILL website or clone the latest github-code. Then delete the old system folder on your server and upload the new system folder. You don't have to touch any other folders.

After you updated your installation, please login to your website and check the new features.

Major Update

Sometimes there are a lot of changes that require a deeper update. You can update the whole system like this:

In very rare cases it might be helpful to create a fresh installation. To do so, just delete the settings folder. Make sure that you have created a backup of your old settings before you delete the live settings. After that you can go to yourwebsite.com/tm/setup, create a new user and setup your whole system again. This includes the configure of all your themes and plugins.

GitHub and Composer

If you work with GitHub and Composer, then make sure that you always make a composer update after you uploaded the new system-folder from GitHub. This is essential, because the GitHub-folder does NOT include the vendor folder with all the dependencies that TYPEMILL uses. If you don't update these dependencies with composer, then the system will not run.

If you download the TYPEMILL from https://typemill.net, then you don't have to worry about this, because the vendor folder with all dependencies is included there.

We decided to skip the vendor folder in GitHub because it constantly caused errors due to some missing libraries.
