# Getting started

Install Strapi alpha.22 globally on your computer. To do so run npm install strapi@3.0.0-alpha.22 -g.

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.22 version) of your project.

Run npm install strapi@3.0.0-alpha.22 --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/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.

# Update AWS S3 provider

If you are using the AWS S3 upload provider you will have to install the new version npm i strapi-provider-upload-aws-s3 --save. It will not break your application. In the new version the region eu-north-1 (Stockholm) is available.

That's all, you have now upgraded to Strapi alpha.22.
