Updating superMicro CMS
Updating to a new version 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.
Unzip the ZIP file supermicrocms.zip to your hard drive.
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.
Upload all the files. Navigate to https://www.yourwebsite.com/admin/install.php and follow the same process as the original installation. You should not need to change the password and will not lose any content but backup first anyway.
