Important: Before updating to any new release make sure to take a back up of the following:

  1. Database Backup: Export your database used for UltimatePOS.
  2. storage/app folder
  3. public/uploads folder
  4. .env file
  5. Translation files: If you have included any new translation language, keep a backup of the language directory from
    resources/lang/{directory created by you} & public/js/lang/{file created by you}

Proceed to update only after you have taken the backup and kept in a safe place.

  1. Unzip the new code and replace the old code with new code.
  2. Check if “.env” file is not present in then replace it from backup.
  3. Go to www.yourwebsite.com/install/update/
  4. It will take a few minutes to install and configure the updates. Make sure you don’t close, refresh or go back.
  5. After updating it will redirect to login page or the home page if you’re already logged in.
  6. Check-in footer of your application it will show the latest version of the application.
  7. Replace the storage/app folder, public/uploads folder with the backup folder which we kept above.

NOTE (For UltimatePOS-ADVANCE): If you’re updating from V2.11.3 to V2.11.4 or higher then do these additional steps:

  1. Copy all files from
    • storage/app/public/business_logos to /public/uploads/business_logos
    • storage/app/public/documents to /public/uploads/documents
    • storage/app/public/img to /public/uploads/img
