How to update GLPI

In this tutorial I will explain how to update GLPI.

Before updating GLPI, I strongly recommend that you make a full backup (file + database).

Once your backup is done, you should also check the following:

  • If you use plugins, that they are compatible with the new version
  • That your environment is compatible (Apache / IIS, PHP, Mysql / MariaDB …)
  • Read the feedback on the update especially in case of major release

Some updates pose more problem (bug) than they correct (I do not speak specifically of GLPI) ….

Update GLPI

1. Go to the official website and download the latest version.
