Specific upgrade instructions for each dot release upgrade can be found on the page detailing that release. View the latest release notes.
For Perch 2 most updates simply require you to replace the core folder, found within the
perch folder (or whatever you have renamed it to). However do check the update notes first.
We work very hard to ensure that updates do not cause any problems, but as a matter of good practice we would always suggest that you take a backup of files and database before updating – just in case something goes wrong.
Upgrading from Perch 1 to Perch 2
There is a little more work to be done to upgrade to a new major version as Perch 2 includes some larger changes than would be expected in a dot release.
