{{Chunk30:Help_screen_Description_Header/en}} This screen allows you to update installed extensions. You will only be able to update extensions that support this feature.

For extensions that support this feature, you will be able to perform an in-place update of the extension without having to upload and install the updated extension files as you did with previous versions of Joomla. The update feature utilizes standard HTTP connection mechanisms to download the extension update files from a remote update server.

{{Chunk30:Help_screen_Quick_Tips_Header/en}} * Only extensions which support the Joomla update system will be listed in this screen. If you use extensions which do not support the update system or you are not sure, consult the extension developer's website.

* It is critical to keep your extensions up-to-date. Failure to do so may expose a vulnerability in your Joomla installation which can be exploited by hackers.

* It is recommended that you backup your Joomla installation files and database before attempting to update extensions or the Joomla installation itself. This will ensure that you can restore your Joomla installation to its previous state if the update fails or causes unexpected results.
