The »update system files« function let you easily maintain your system files.

This is how it works
The function simply reads the version information and release date of your system files and compare the information with the master repository. If the master repository contains a higher version or a newer release date than the files on your system you will see them listed.

It takes a short while to make the comparison so please be patient while updating your system files!

How to maintain your systems files

Basic Usage.

1 Click to start looking for updated files in the n-gen master repository and compare them with your version.

2 Click to start looking for published files in the n-gen master repository and checks if the files are present in your system.

3 Click to show a list of your system's obsolete files.

4 Click to show a list of of available system graphics in the n-gen master repository.


Update files
Click the blue button to see if the master repository contains system files that are present on your system but have a higher version or a newer release date. The will be listed for download.

Tick the checkbox to replace your system file with a the newer version from the n-gen master repository or
tick the "Select All" checkbox to replace all the updated files. 

Check for new files
Click the green button to compare your file inventory with the files in CMS master repository. If the result of the comparison shows that the master repository contains new files they will be listed for download directly from the master repository to your web server.

Click the  icon to add the file from the n-gen master repository to your system. 


Deleting old files
Your old files - which will become obsolete when you download newer versions - will not be delete or overwritten. They will be moved to the »/obsolete« folder and stored there until you manually delete them by clicking the red button.

Click the  icon to delete the obsolete file from your system to free up hard drive space. Click the bin icon to delete all files.
Note that normally the system files are quite small in file size so keeping them in the /obsolete folder will not take up much hard drive space. 

Revert to an older version
The above described procedure ensures that you can always manually copy older/obsolete files back and rename them to their original filename (extension) and by that revert your system to a previous state if something goes wrong og you preferred the previous version better.
Files in the /obsolete folder will have the original name but will be extended with »[yyyy-MM-dd]«, i.e. the file
will become
if the file was updated on the 12th of December 2020.

System Graphics
However only text based system files can be updated this way. If you want to update system graphics you can search the Master Repository by clicking the  icon.
