Upgrade Instructions 4.0 → 4.1
By using composer, you can update an existing installation to a specific version, without having to create a new project.
For further information on what changed please take a look at the changelog.
Before doing substantial changes, make sure you create a backup of the database and files!
cd /installation-root/ # Update the core package dependencies composer require --no-update "neos/neos:~4.1.0" composer require --no-update "neos/nodetypes:~4.1.0" # Update optional package dependencies (if installed) composer require --no-update "neos/demo:~4.1.0" composer require --no-update "neos/site-kickstarter:~4.1.0"
If you have development packages in your composer manifest, update them to match as well:
# Update development packages (if installed) composer require --no-update --dev "neos/buildessentials:5.1.x-dev"
To upgrade an existing project to the new React UI you have add the following dependencies. If you didn't upgrade already with Neos 4.0, you should definitely do it now.
# Change into your Neos directory cd /installation-root/ # Flush the caches ./flow flow:cache:flush --force # Update the core package dependencies composer require --no-update "neos/neos-ui:^1.4"

One potentially breaking change did happen, so in case you used the following mentioned things in your code, you will have to adjust your code:
- If you implemented your own object or collection validator, please read this PR and check if you are affected.
# Update the packages composer update # Flush the caches ./flow flow:cache:flush --force # Run code migrations, as needed for any packages that need to be # migrated. Rule of thumb: # # - any 3rd party packages that still install fine at least claim # to work, and should be updated by their maintainer(s). # - your own packages should always be treated with a migration, # at least it marks that as done. # ./flow flow:core:migrate <Vendor.PackageName> # If not done since 4.0, set database charset and update to the # current default given character set and collation ./flow database:setcharset # Run database migrations ./flow doctrine:migrate # Publish resources ./flow resource:publish
If you run into trouble with Neos content or resources, the following may help:
# If you get error messages when running Flow CLI commands: rm -rf Data/Temporary # If you experience issues with pages not working, try ./flow node:repair # If you experience issues with resources, thumbnail or assets, try ./flow resource:clean ./flow media:clearthumbnails
