Updating PicoCMS with Composer

A minor update, from 2.1.0 to 2.1.1.
composer is installed locally on the server (Debian oldstable) via apt.
All I had to do is

  • navigate to the folder including the PicoCMS installation

  • execute composer update:

    $ composer update
    Loading composer repositories with package information
    Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
      - Removing symfony/polyfill-ctype (v1.12.0)
      - Installing symfony/polyfill-ctype (v1.15.0)

    Updating Pico plugins file

That's all.

It's advisable to have two separate sites, one for testing (staging), one that is actually seen by visitors (production). Now that the staging site is updated and working, I can copy the whole folder structure over to production.
