FILEman 2.1 to FILEman 3.xLast updated: 21 March 2022
Earlier versions of FILEman required our extension manager EXTman. This is no longer the case. EXTman is automatically uninstalled during the installation of FILEman 3.
FILEman 3 includes a number of changes that make it impossible to downgrade to an older release, in case something goes wrong. Here is a list of steps to perform before you upgrade and a list of changes performed during upgrade.
- Backup, make sure you have a working backup of your site that includes your files.
- Clean cache, clean your Joomla cache to prevent any issues since FILEman uses a new caching system.
- FILEman install the latest FILEman package.
- Optional, install the latest LOGman and DOCman packages if you use them on your site. So you should download them too. Since all our extensions share a common base framework your site might stop functioning if you don’t upgrade all extensions together.
