Important: Always back up your site before upgrading.
UpgradeMODX installs a dashboard widget that alerts you when there is an upgrade to MODX available -- and installs it for you!.
When there is an upgrade available, UpgradeMODX will show an "Upgrade MODX" button and a form containing MODX versions. The recommended version to upgrade to should be selected automatically.
After selecting a version and clicking on the submit button. UpgradeMODX will put all the new files in place and launch setup.
When Setup is finished, you'll be back in the Manager using a new version.
UpgradeMODX should work on any installation of MODX except the SDK version. That includes versions with renamed and/or moved directories.
The minimum version listed below is a guess, but for very old versions or MODX that do not support widgets, UpgradeMODX will install an UpgradeMODX resource which you can view to run UpgradeMODX. Once you reach a version that supports widgets, you can reinstall UpgradeMODX and use its Dashboard widget to upgrade.
