Upgrading Applications Installed Through Your Control Panel

To help you maintain applications you install through your control panel (more info), we have tools to help you maintain it.

Applications you use for your website, like WordPress®, Drupal®, and Joomla!® need to be updated frequently to patch issues developers find with them.

Some of these applications will automatically update themselves. However, if you have an older version of the application, have that feature disabled, or the application does not offer automatic updates, you can manually update your applications through your control panel.
