How to Update DMS

Recommended Posts

Toby
I can't figure out how to update the DMS, I understand that there have been updates to it through GitHub, like bug fixes.

Do I just re download and install from GitHub, or will that wipe my preferences and settings within DMS?

Also I am using the free version of DMS.

Thanks for the reply Batman.
So I can just ftp the updated 'DMS' folder across and I will not loose any of the css or sections I have created so far with DMS?

Hi Toby

I believe that ...If you update via FTP you loose the css or sections activate.

Please wait for a moderator´s reply.

I don´t sure how to make this.

If you download the latest release, and use FTP to replace a previous issue, you will not lose any CSS or settings. That's all written to the database.

 

However, I do not recommend using the Github alpha code since the developers are working on that and it could break your site.  Only use the last official release, which is v. 0.96.

      I am having an issue with DMS editor not loading.  Just keeps spinning and spinning.
      Have tried several things - Logged in and out, cleared cache, deactivated all plugins, but the issue persists.
      I even had our host restore from a backup a few weeks ago, when I know it WAS working, as I edited a text box on the homepage.  The restore from backup didn't help either.
      Also, the front end of the site shows that the site is framed, or boxed now (whatever you call it), instead of full width as it was previously (last week).
      Dev console shows that there are php errors in Google maps - file is attached.
      Can someone please help?  Not sure what else I can do here...
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi everyone,
      Flywheel have reported errors on my clients site 'www.racewaredirect.co.uk' and it's not loading. Can someone please provide some information on how to fix this? The site has never experienced these issues before.
      Thanks,

      Hi there,
      I've got an issue with 3 websites built with DMS since I migrated them from http to https that I need help with please.
      When any changes are made - e.g. new posts added or existing posts amended - certain sections of the live site seem to break e.g. image headers hang and don't load (b/g on canvas section), sliders hang and don't load (Revslider), flipper section doesn't load.
      Logging in and then clicking 'Edit the site using DMS' seems to fix the problem. Often if I try to open up another browser window to edit the site / re publish I'm unable to as the page wont load / hangs while trying to load.
      Any ideas how to fix this? On a couple of the sites I've installed a caching plugin as I thought it might be a loading speed issue but it's still happening.
      Website URL's can be provided privately.
      Many thanks in advance.
