How to enable and install Early Access updates and using the new "Package Installer" from the updates page.

Question: I noticed the "Early Access" updates and "Install Package" on the updates page. What are they and how do I use them?

Answer: These are used to install the very latest Early Access updates and to install specific packages when the need arises.

From time to time we may ask you to install the latest Early Access "EA" updates, this may be because you require a new feature or to resolve an issue you have. Here's how you enable and install them.

Enabling and installing Early Access Updates

1. From the Admin panel, click on the "Configuration" tab.
2. Click "Updates"
3. Click to expand the "Options" menu.

6. Click the "Check" button to check for available updates. (You can view details of the available updates by expanding the "Details" menu)
7. Click "install" to install the available updates. (You will probably be prompted to restart the application when the updates have been installed)
8. Go back to the Early Access updates page and turn the Early Access switch OFF. 
9. Click "Save"

 

Installing an update using the Package Installer

Another way we can get a specific feature or fix onto your installation is by using the "Package Installer". This allows us to give you a specific or even unique build to install. Here's how to use it.

2. Click "Updates"
3. Click to expand the "Install Package" menu.
4. Click "Choose file" a file requester dialogue box will appear.

6. Click "Install".
7. After the package has installed, you will be prompted to click to restart the service to complete the package installation.
