A Micro Micro CMS

Updating superMicro CMS

Updating superMicro CMS is simple. Follow these instructions:

Backup before updating

Backup existing pages, comments and images before updating. If your server supports ZIP archiving, admin backup provides a utility to ZIP the files for download to your hard drive. Otherwise they can be backed up by downloading them via FTP.


(1) Download

Unzip the ZIP file supermicrocms.zip to your hard drive.

(2) Logout

If you haven't already, logout of admin.

(3) Upload

Upload all the folders and files inside the /admin/ folder.

Upload all the folders and files inside the /inc/ folder.

Upload all the files inside the /css/ folder and /img/ folder.

Upload all the files located directly in the cms root folder.

Important: do not upload the folders themselves because they contain other files already there on the website: the settings, menu, stylesheets, passwords etc, plus pages and images created so far.

If you have edited stylesheet.css, any of the inc/languages/ files or any of extra-content.php, extra-head.php or tracking.php, don't upload the new ones.

(4) Re-install and setup

Upload all the files. Navigate to https://www.yourwebsite.com/admin/install.php and follow the same process as the original installation. You don't need to change the password (unless you want to) and won't lose any content, but backup first anyway.

Then go to https://www.yourwebsite.com/admin/index.php (pages) and in 'Styles:' select the theme you are using (from 'Default styles', 'White styles' or 'Mini styles') then 'Get styles' / 'Update styles' ('Default' and 'White' are both the same except that Default is 'minified').

Note: if you are updating the previous system (la.plume Micro CMS) you will also need to make a few other changes. For more information get in touch.
