Upgrading Joomla

Upgrading Joomla

Hello!

I have to upgrade my joomla and virtuemart tonight if possible.   

The metamod upgrade instructions indicate I can just use the joomla/install to overwrite older versions of metatemplate pro with the new files and I WONT loose my metatemplate rules. 

Is this so for metatemplate too?    Please advise

Re: Upgrading Joomla

Hi Angelina,

yes, it's the same for MetaMod, MetaMod Pro, MetaTemplate and MetaTemplate Pro.

Upgrades of Joomla and VM should not affect any of these extensions (unless something goes wrong with the Joomla upgrade). Of course it's always a good idea to have a backup, e.g. Akeeba backup (free).

Upgrading MM, MMP, MT and MTP themselves can always be done on top of the old versions using the standard Joomla installer. This upgrades "in place" and will not affect current modules or rules.

Cheers,
Stephen
