# Update node modules
Update the Strapi's dependencies version (move Strapi's dependencies to
3.0.0-alpha.18 version) of your project.
npm install email@example.com --save to update your strapi version.
# Update the Admin
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
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/config/jwt.json file in the new one.

plugins folder and replace it with the new one.
That's all, you have now upgraded to Strapi
