How to update NexoPOS and his modules
Nexo Updater introduce a one click update from the dashboard. This actually replace the Update UI provided by default with Tendoo CMS. This feature is only available for those having a valid licence (not expired) on Nexo Platform. Nexo Updater can updates modules or the entire system. NexoPOS is linked to Tendoo CMS, so that when NexoPOS is updated, basically all the system is updated. External module like Gastro, are updated separately.
The update UI looks like a table with current applications/modules which has an update, and a button to retreive new updates.
The table consist of the name of the application or module, the current version, the new version the action “Update” and the action “Changelog“. There is also a “Check Updates” on top, which let you refresh the updates list. You can use that button if you don’t want the system to check the update automatically (after each 6 ours).
You should check the changelog to know what are the new features. There might be an important changes which can affect your experience. Check the changelog before updating. You might also need to backup manually your installation (to avoid any unexpected issues). Nexo Updater doesn’t offer a backup feature (which will be provided on Nexo Platform).
