How do I upgrade an already installed extension like a plugin using configure?


  • You must be an admin with access to the configure script and you must additionally know the special configure password.
  • Open configure
  • Find the section Extensions and open it by clicking on it
  • Find the link "Find More Extensions" on the right and click it


  • Configure now loads all extensions from twiki.org. This can take a minute. If twiki.org is very busy this can occationally fail. Then just try again a minute later.
  • Look for the extensions you want to upgrade. You can see which version you have installed and which version is available at twiki.org.
  • If you find that there is a newer version - then it is good to first check with a browser if the newer version is compatible with your version of TWiki. Configure cannot see this. If you run the latest version of TWiki a new version of an extensions which is marked as working for your version should always be safe to upgrade.
  • Click the upgrade link and inspect carefully all the text that is returned. It writes quite a lot even when things go well. Look at the bottom to check that the extension upgraded without errors.
