Announcements Updating one or many Geeklog sites do not must be an issue. This is how I do the job: I prepare the files with the necessary modifications for a single site, then I upload all files by ftp for a first site. I updated this site using the dedicated script and I check everything works perfectly. Then I repeat this process for each site.

Steps to update your Geeklog CMS

1. DB and files backups
2. Download a fresh archive from geeklog.net
3. Extract files from the archive
4. Remove db-config.php
