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


# Update node modules

Update the Strapi's dependencies version (move Strapi's dependencies to 3.0.0-alpha.25.2 version) of your project.

Run npm install strapi@3.0.0-alpha.25.2 --save to update your strapi version.


# Update the Admin

TIP

If you performed updates in the Admin, you will have to manually migrate your changes.

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


# Update the Plugins

TIP

If you did a custom update on one of the plugins, you will have to manually migrate your update.

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 with the new one.
