Update guide

This guide contains the steps to update Chevereto to its last version. Depending on which version you are currently running you should follow the adequate update procedure.

One-click update (3.6.9 and newer)

Manual procedures

Manual update (files)

This procedure will be required if your installation is unable to fetch the Chevereto API as won't be able to download the update. Note that is your server which limits this connectivity.

Manual update (database)

If the images table has more than 1,000,000 records, Chevereto will dump the SQL statements required to carry the database update which must run directly in the SQL console. You can force dumping the update query by going to /dashboard/settings/system.

Update from 2.1 - 2.6

When updating from these old versions try to always perform a database backup of your system.

Update from 2.0.X and older
