How to upgrade a program installed with Softaculous?

Keeping your website applications up to date is extremely important.

New versions of common scripts are released on a regular basis, and these updates contain bug fixes and security patches.

Failure to apply patches and keep your applications updated means that you will get hacked and your site defaced/abused or deleted.

Regular maintenance is a critical part of your website/online-presence, and must not be ignored.

Astutium have made it as simple as possible to install, manage and upgrade over 200 applications with as little as 3 clicks through our Softaculous Script Installer which comes as standard on all hosting packages, and is available as an option for all virtual, cloud and dedicated servers.
