Hi. How can we help?

FILEman 3.x to FILEman 3.3

Last updated: 21 March 2022

If you are unsure about the upgrade or have questions related to your setup, you can contact us and we can make sure everything is in order together.


  • Joomla 3.10.x or later
  • FILEman 3.3, check our upgrading guides when running an older version

How it works

1. Check the changelog

We have added almost a dozen new features to FILEman 3.3, make sure to check the changelog before upgrading.

2. Backup, the backup

Before you start the upgrade process please make a full backup of your site. Make sure your site is offline or make a copy of your site where you can work in.

3. Upgrade FILEman

Upgrading to FILEman 3.3 is done via the standard Joomla extension updater. Navigate to Extensions > Manage > Update. Click Find Updates in the toolbar if you do not see FILEman in the list. Then select FILEman and click Update in the toolbar.

4. Upgrade other Joomlatools extensions

Also install the latest packages for our FILEman, LOGman, TEXTman and LEADman extensions if you use them on your site.

Since all our extensions share a common base framework your site might stop functioning if you don’t upgrade all extensions together.
