The Check for Updates procedure

If you wish to update your RSform! version you must follow the update procedure.

To do so, you have 2 options.

  • Uninstall the old version and install the new version
  1. When you purchased a license, you received a code and a download link. You can use the download link to get the full version of the component. Just go to Component and download the version that you wish to install ( for Joomla 1.0.x or for Joomla 1.5.x). You can also get the component by going to RSjoomla! Support Center. Note that you won't be able to access the support area without a valid code.
  2. After you downloaded the last version of the component, you can backup the forms you created by clicking on Backup your forms
  3. Once you backed-up the forms, uninstall RSform!
  4. Install the new version of the component
  5. Add the code in the code box
  6. Click on Restore and point to the backup file
  • Update to full version using the Check For Updates procedure(doesn't work on all servers)
  1. Paste the code you received in the Your Code box.
  2. Attention! this procedure doesn't work on servers that do not have the Allow remote inclusion php option set to true. So if you see the message:
    Error, invalid code or remote file _update_rsform.xml not available
    you won't be able to use this procedure.
  3. Click on the Accept terms checkbox
  4. Click on Update
  5. The old version will be replaced with the latest RSform version automatically.
