It is always recommended to stay up to date with the latest version of any of the installed software to avoid running into unnecessary bugs by receiving the latest updates from us. Three things to always remember every time you run an update is Backup, backup and backup.
Make it a habit to run a backup before updating any component; including EasySocial. There are many schools of thought or ways to backup your site, but please stick with what you're comfortable with. We would like to recommend you read through this documentation on backing up your site.
Updating the EasySocial component is just as simple as installing the component. You could either:
- Install the latest installer over the existing component;
Or, uninstall the previous version and install the latest version.
Uninstalling EasySocial from your site would not remove your stored data.
Please choose which version you're upgrading to:
If you're still using an older version of EasySocial on your site and wish to update it, please drop us a ticket on our support channel and we'll assist you on the matter given that you're an active subscriber.
