How to Update Mura

Mura offers a way to keep your installation up-to-date, with the click of a button. Please be sure to back up the database, and your filesystem before attempting to use this feature. We also recommend performing this in a development or testing environment before using this feature in a "live" or "production" environment.

Follow the steps below to update Mura.

  1. From the back-end administrator area of Mura, select Global Settings on the main navigation, then click Update Mura Core. Or, from the Global Settings area, you may also click the "Update Core Files" button, located near the top of the screen.
  2. You should see the Update Mura Core confirmation window, with a warning instructing you not to update the core files unless you've back up your current Mura install. If you wish to proceed, select the "OK" button, otherwise, click "Cancel" to abort the update process.
  3. If you selected the "OK" button, Mura will use the value of the autoupdateurl variable entered in the file located at {context}/config/settings.ini.cfm. No files are ever deleted during this process, files are only overwritten if they exist, or created if they don't. Once the process completes, Mura will display a message, along with the version you have been updated to as found in the {context}/box.json file.
  4. When you're finished, you may click the List Sites button to return to the Global SettingsSites view.
