Updating Guide

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 (this folder will be only present if you have V2.11.4 or higher)
  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}

Important: To update to version 2.8 or higher, make sure you have PHP V 7.1 or higher. We recommend that you use PHP 7.2

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 the codebase place the backup env file.
  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 with the backup folder which we kept above.

NOTE: 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
    • storage/app/public/invoice_logos to /public/uploads/invoice_logos

If there is any problem with the updating, delete the database and import the backup database which we kept. Try again to update it.
