Getting the latest version from GitHub

fabrikWhen updating Fabrik, I've occasionally come across an issue that can only be fixed with the latest version from GitHub.


Start by downloading the latest version.

  1. Browse to the GitHub repository for Fabrik.
  2. With the master branch selected (it is by default), click the Clone or download button.
  3. You will now have a file.
  4. Upload this .zip file to your web host.
  5. Extract the .zip file to create a fabrik-master directory with the up to date files.
  6. Copy only the extracted folders (except fabrik_build) into the root directory of your website.



For the final step you need to log into the back-end of Joomla.

  1. Go to Extensions > Manage > Manage.
  2. Filter with the word Fabrik.
  3. Display All.
  4. Select all Fabrik plugins and click the Refresh cache button.
  5. Go to Extensions > Manage > Discover.
  6. Click the Discover button.
  7. Select all the Fabrik extensions and click the Install button.
  8. Go to Extensions > Manage > Update.
  9. Click the Update button.
