Upgrade Instructions 4.1 → 4.2
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:~4.2.0" composer require --no-update "neos/nodetypes:~4.2.0" # Update optional package dependencies (if installed) composer require --no-update "neos/demo:~4.2.0" composer require --no-update "neos/site-kickstarter:~4.2.0"
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:5.2.x-dev"
To upgrade an existing project to the new React UI you have to add the following dependencies. If you didn't upgrade already with Neos 4.1, 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"
Custom Inspector Editors
This release includes two potentially breaking changes:
- User Sessions now persist by default even if the normal caches are flushed. If you prefer them to be flushed you can add the command ./flow session:destroyall to your CI or execute it manually (see #1390)
- NodeType::isOfType() now correctly returns false if a super type is removed explicitly. This is in sync with the instanceof FlowQuery filter. The change only affects the PHP API (see #1390)
# Update the packages composer update # Flush the caches ./flow flow:cache:flush --force ./flow flow:session:destroyAll # Run code migrations (as needed for any packages that need to be migrated) ./flow flow:core:migrate <Vendor.PackageName> # If not already on 4.0 or 4.1, set database charset and update to the new 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
