Upgrade Instructions 2.0 → 2.1
By using composer, you can update an existing installation to a specific version, without having to create a new project.
As always, before doing substantial changes, make sure you create a backup of the database and files!
# Update the core package dependencies
composer require --no-update "typo3/neos:~2.1.0"
composer require --no-update "typo3/neos-nodetypes:~2.1.0"
# Update optional package dependencies (if installed)
composer require --no-update "typo3/neosdemotypo3org:~2.1.0"
composer require --no-update "typo3/neos-kickstarter:~2.1.0"
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 "typo3/buildessentials:~3.1.x-dev"
composer require --no-update --dev "mikey179/vfsstream:~1.6"
composer require --no-update --dev "phpunit/phpunit:~4.8 || ~5.2.0"
Now do the actual update:
# Update the packages
# Flush the caches
./flow flow:cache:flush --force
# Ensure you have correct database charset/collation to prevent issues with foreign key constraints
# Run code migrations (all or specific ones)
# Run database migrations
# Publish resources
You may have some legacy dependencies and configuration entries in your composer manifest. Feel free to check if the following is needed in your setup:
# Remove the following line from composer.json (if present)
# Remove unneeded dependencies
composer remove --no-update "typo3/flow"
composer remove --no-update "doctrine/migrations"
# Remove deprecated packages
composer remove --no-update "typo3-ci/typo3flow"
