Upgrade guide

Upgrading Nova to the latest version.

What you'll need

Before you get started updating Nova, make sure you have the following things ready to go:

  • An FTP client for accessing your server
  • The latest copy of Nova downloaded from the Anodyne site and unzipped
  • A solid, recent backup of your site

Updating Nova

Step 1: Remove Nova

Once you've finished backing up your site (because you already did that, right?), delete the nova directory in its entirety from your server.

Step 2: Upload Nova

With the nova directory deleted from your server, you can now upload the nova directory from the zip archive you downloaded from the Anodyne site. (This will give you the code for the latest version.)

Step 3: Run the update

Navigate to {your-site}/update in your browser and you'll be guided through the update process. Once the update process is complete, you'll be directed back to your site and will be ready to use Nova again.
