FILEman 3.x to FILEman 4.0Last 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 4.0.x, check our upgrading guides when running an older version
How it works
1. 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.
2. Upgrade FILEman
Important Note: Our Joomla 4 compatible extensions are also compatible with Joomla 3, they're built to allow for seamless upgrading.
Upgrading to FILEman 4.0 is done via the standard Joomla extension installer. Navigate to Extensions > Manage > Install. Click the Upload Package File tab and select (or drag and drop) the FILEman 4.0 package, which you can download from the Joomla 4 tab in your Joomlatools dashboard's downloads section.
3. Upgrade other Joomlatools extensions
Also install the latest packages for our DOCman, 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.
