How to Update Joomla
Hello Joomla User! One of the greatest benefits of having a Joomla website, is that it’s so incredibly easy to keep it up to date.
Joomla is always improving. Because they are #2 in popularity to WordPress, they have to work extra hard to keep Joomla cutting edge and working flawlessly. This means that there are always regular updates. In recent years, it’s even become easier to apply those updates… and I’ll demonstrate that to you in a moment.
If your website happens to be build on Joomla 1.6 or earlier, then you you’ll actually need more work. When Joomla launched version 1.7 it was a huge leap, and more than just an update, it was a rebuild of their platform. Upgrading from 1.6 to 1.7 typically takes my team about 3 hours to complete… just to give you an idea.
From then on, updates have been much easier. Once you’ve logged it, you just click one button, and your updated. Let me show you.
Ok, so we’re logged in and looking at the Joomla Dashboard. After a couple moments of thinking, these 2 boxes right here will let you know if you are all up to date, or if updates are available. If there are, all you need to do is click on them, and proceed through another screen or two. It will tell you when the update is complete. When you return to the control panel, it shows us that the website is now up to date.
That’s pretty nice isn’t it? If you liked this tutorial, feel free to share it with others. I’ve created plenty more Joomla tutorials that I hope you find helpful. Also, I have a free gift for you. Many know me for my programs where I take an expert and turn them into a celebrity in their field. I help them take their expertise and package it in a way that pulls in magnetic traffic to their website. I’ve created an eCourse that guides participants through these steps, called “The Treasure Map to Magnetic Traffic.” If you provide your name and email in the box below, you can have full access to this eCourse for free.
