Download & Install

Updating your CE Phoenix software is not an essential step in setting up your shop but it is important to keep the software up to date, CE Phoenix is regularly updated with improvements.

You can check the version of CE Phoenix that you are using - from admin go to Adminnavbartools.png Tools → Version Checker

If you are using the latest version you will see this:


If there is a newer version available you will see this:


Updates are released as a separate download containing only those files that have been changed.

Instructions for updating are released with the download.

Updates cannot be tested before release on every individual setup, for example, on every host server together with every possible add-on and individual configuration so it would not be surprising if some things do not work after updating.

Therefore, it is advisable to apply updates to a Test Shop first. Find fixes for things that do not work before applying the update to a Live Shop.

Fixes for add-ons should be found from the creator of the add-on, otherwise the Support Forum is very helpful.

It is recommended to always back up the database and site files before making any changes.

It is recommended to always make a record of any changes made to the site.
