How to Run upgrade.php in Elgg

Several Elgg users wonder why they cannot see changes they do to their Elgg sites. I tell them to run the upgrade.php, but they do not know how to that. This article will give you a step by a step guide on how to run upgrade.php in Elgg.

When developing a theme or simply making some CSS changes in Elgg, you need to run the script upgrade.php to see those changes in the site. What does this script actually do? It flushes the cache and runs code and database upgrades.

How to run it?

After your domain name, i.e. yourElggdomain.com, you need to put this:

www.yourElggdomain.com/upgrade.php

Wait until the upgrade is done, and that is it! Every time you edit the CSS, you need to run this to see the changes on your Elgg site.

This concludes how to run upgrade.php in Elgg
