The new UI theme of the worksuite is based on laravel 8 and has a different directory structure than the earlier versions.

So it will require a manual upgrade instead of a one-click update for the first time.

You need to follow the following steps to update the app to the new UI theme version.

Steps for manual update

1. Take a backup of the current app.

a) Archive the current app directory.

b) Download the database backup of the current app

c) Delete all the current files and folders except the following

  1. .env
  2. public/uploads(if exists) and public/user-uploads
  3. storage/app/modules_statuses.json

2. Extract the new version in your current app directory.

3. Restore the public/user-uploads directory from your old app into the new version.

4. That's It! The setup is done.

5. Reload the page on the browser and wait for the update to complete.

6. After you see the new UI, change SESSION_DRIVER=database in the .env file
