Always do a database backup before upgrading. You can use the mysqldump or pg_dump tools to quickly export your database as a file.

  • With Roadiz command (MySQL only): bin/roadiz database:dump -c will generate a SQL file in app/ folder
  • With a MySQL server: mysqldump -u[user] -p[user_password] [database_name] > dumpfilename.sql
  • With a PostgreSQL server: pg_dump -U [user] [database_name] -f dumpfilename.sql

Use Composer to update dependencies or Roadiz itself with Standard edition, make sure that your Roadiz version constraint is set in your project composer.json file, then:

composer update -n --no-dev;

In order to avoid losing sensible node-sources data. You should regenerate your node-source entities classes files:

bin/roadiz generate:nsentities;

Then run database schema update, first review migration details to see if no data will be removed:

bin/roadiz orm:schema-tool:update --dump-sql;

Then, if migration summary is OK (no data loss), perform the following changes:

bin/roadiz orm:schema-tool:update --force;
# Clear cache for each environment
bin/roadiz cache:clear -e dev
bin/roadiz cache:clear -e prod
bin/roadiz cache:clear -e prod --preview
bin/roadiz cache:clear-fpm -e dev
bin/roadiz cache:clear-fpm -e prod
bin/roadiz cache:clear-fpm -e prod --preview


If you are using an OPcode cache like XCache or APC, you’ll need to purge cache manually because it can’t be done from a CLI interface as they are shared cache engines. As a last chance try, you can restart your php-fpm service.
