How to install or uninstall modules
Provides core and module upgrade notifications and optionally installation from the admin.
Can be used to upgrade your ProcessWire core or any module that is available from http://modules.processwire.com.
Files installed by this tool are readable and writable by Apache, which may be a security problem in some hosting environments. Especially shared hosting environments where Apache runs as the same user across all hosting accounts. If in doubt, you should instead install core upgrades and/or modules and module upgrades manually through your hosting account (FTP, SSH, etc.), which is already very simple to do. This ensures that any installed files are owned and writable by your user account rather than Apache.
This tool checks if upgrades are available for your ProcessWire installation. If available, it will download the update. If your file system is writable, it will install the update for you. If your file system is not writable, then it will install upgrade files in a writable location (under /site/assets/cache/) and give you instructions on what files to move.
Options to upgrade from the master or dev branch are available.
This utility can be also used to upgrade any PW 2.5.20+ or newer site to the latest version.
This utility makes versioned backup copies of any files it overwrites during the upgrade. Should an upgrade fail for some reason, you can manually restore from the backups should you need to.
If your ProcessWire version is new enough to have the WireDatabaseBackup class (PW 2.5.14+) then this module will also give you the option of backing up your database.
After installing a core upgrade, you may want to manually update the permissions of installed files to be non-writable to Apache, depending on your environment.
Uses web services from modules.processwire.com to compare your current installed versions of modules to the latest remote versions available. Provides upgrade links when it finds newer versions of modules you have installed.
After installing module upgrades, you may want to manually update the permissions of installed files to be non-writable to Apache, depending on your environment.
