# Migration guide from alpha.10 to alpha.11

Here are the major changes:

  • Add plugin upload

TIP

Feel free to join us on Slack and ask questions about the migration process.


# Getting started

Install Strapi alpha.11.1 globally on your computer. To do so run npm install strapi@3.0.0-alpha.11.1 -g.

When it's done, generate a new empty project strapi new myNewProject (don't pay attention to the database configuration).


# Configurations

You will have to update just 1 file: package.json

  • Edit the Strapi's dependencies version: (move Strapi's dependencies to 3.0.0-alpha.11.1 version) in package.json file
{
  "dependencies": {
    "lodash": "4.x.x",
    "strapi": "3.0.0-alpha.11.1",
    "strapi-mongoose": "3.0.0-alpha.11.1"
  }
}

# Update the Admin

Delete your old admin folder and replace it by the new one.


# Update the Plugins

Copy this file /plugins/users-permissions/config/jwt.json from your old project and paste it in the corresponding one in your new project.

Copy the fields and relations you had in your /plugins/users-permissions/models/User.settings.json and /plugins/users-permissions/config/jwt.json file in the new one.

Then, delete your old plugins folder and replace it by the new one.


# Update the Dependencies

Now let's update the dependencies in your package.json we edited earlier. Simply run npm install:

That's all, you have now upgraded to Strapi alpha.11.
