How to update from Joomla 3.0.0 to Joomla 3.0.1
This tutorial will show you how to update from Joomla 3.0.0 to 3.0.1, which is a bit different than normal. (note: Joomla 3.0.1 will not be released until October 9th, 2012)
- Backup your site
The update process is generally safe, but it's always a good idea to make a backup before updating. So please go ahead and make a backup of your site now.
- Install the hotfix patch via Extension Manager.
- Go to the Install from URL tab
- For the Install URL, copy and paste the following URL:
- Update to Joomla 3.0.1 via the Joomla! Update component
After getting the success message, go to Components >> Joomla! Update.
Note #1: If you are not getting the "Note: Hot patch for 3.0.1 update is installed" message, then please repeat Step 2 or ask for some help from a trusted developer.
Note #2: If you're not getting the "Joomla! update was found", click on Purge Cache button.
If you see both of the above, Install the Update.
Note #3: If you use FTP, you might have to FTP the update package, which you can download at: http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/frs/?action=FrsReleaseBrowse&frs_package_id=6517
