Hi Friends,

After the releasing of Joomla 3.0 and Bootstrap, on 9 October 2012 Joomla 3.0.1 - the first version in the series of Joomla 3.0.x released with 1 security issue fixed, 1 new feature and 47 tracker issues fixed (please check more in here). In this article, we will introduce a quick guide for customers which want to update site from Joomla 3.0.0 to Joomla 3.0.1

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR 3.0.0 SITES:

If you plan to update a site from 3.0.0 to 3.0.1, you need to install the Joomla 3.0.0 Hot Patch first.

QUICK GUIDE FOR UPDATING FROM JOOMLA 3.0.0 to 3.0.1

1. Backup your site:

The update process is generally safe but it's always a good idea is you make a backup before updating. So please go ahead and make a backup of your site now.

2. Install the hotfix patch via Extension Manager

Log into your administrator, then go to Extensions >> Extension Manager, then:
  • Go to the Install From URL tab
  • Copy and Paste the URL of Hot Patch (is: http://joomlacode.org/gf/download/frsrelease/17575/76677/joomla_3-0-0_hotpatch.zip) to Install URL
  • Click on Install

3. Update to Joomla 3.0.1 via the Joomla! update component

  • After getting the success message, go to Component >> Joomla! Update
  • Click on Options
  • In the Update Server option, select Short Term Support, then Save & Close

And now, please check the result:

NOTES:

  • If you are not getting the "Note: Hot patch for 3.0.1 update is installed" message, then please repeat Step 2 or ask for some help from a trusted developer.
  • If you're not getting the "Joomla! update was found", click on Purge Cache button.
  • If you see both of the above, click on Install the Update.
  • If you use FTP, you might have to FTP the update package, which you can download at: http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla/frs/?action=FrsReleaseBrowse&frs_package_id=6517
