Need to Update Magento?

Classical Way

Modern Way

Or you can use firegento/magento repo, supported by Firegento Magento Community to install magento with composer, where you will:

  • find all magento versions with patches
  • easily install/update magento with only one command
  • get support from community on core bugs

To generate composer.json and install magento for the first time run:

composer require magento-hackathon/magento-composer-installer ~3.0
composer require aydin-hassan/magento-core-composer-installer ~1.2
composer require firegento/magento ~

Feel informed? I hope so.
