Topic: Update extension?

If I install extension which will have something to do with database, how i can update this extension? As i cannot simply delete and reinstall, as it will also delete data. Thanks!

Re: Update extension?

In the install code, you can check if the tables already exist and do a database upgrade if necessary. Then just boost the version number and you can upgrade it from the extension installation page.

SuperMAG: Not the same thing at all. He's talking about upgrading extensions when a new version comes out, not about rapidly refreshing hooks for development purposes.

Yep, it is only for extension developers if they added something new in there extension(manifest.xml) that was not there before.

Re: Update extension?

i got the idea how to upgrade the extension, it's really fantastic one. but i think it would be better to use the button with caption "Upgrade" rather than "Install", i think it's possible to do it.
