Download 5.7.2 from the download page, and place the directory inside your site's updates/ directory. Login as an admin and go to the Update concrete5 page in the dashboard and you should see 5.7.2. as an option. Click through to update.

if the update doesn't seem to take (e.g. it says that you're not running 5.7.2) – you can "force" the upgrade to take place by clicking that force upgrade link.

Is it all ways supposed to work like this in 5.7 or when are we going to get back the old sleek way of upgrading? (just click Update and the file is downloaded to the server and updated)

We plan on re-enabling the downloadable upgrades very soon, hopefully in the next point release (

The problem with this is that concrete5 will not work unless you keep the update directory in place. This means that concrete5 is taking up twice the amount of space it should - and I am running out of space.

Is there a way round this?

Where should be this 'updates' directory? I don't find it in my concrete 5.7.1 installation.

The updates directory should be in your site root. You can make a new one in case you deleted it.

Thank you, it worked. Aferwards I could delete the update-directory and clear the enty in the update.php file. So I think, there is no extra diskspace needen.

Does anyone know, if I really use 5.7.2 when I delete the content in the updates folder? How can i test if I use 5.7.2 or am back to 5.7.1?

I think you are back to 5.7.1 if you delete the 5.7.2 files from the /updates folder. If you right-click your page and choose View Source, you should be able to see what version is running near the top of the source code.

<meta name="generator" content="concrete5 - 5.7.2" />

Thank you. It seems, that there is actually no way to savely upgrade concrete5.7.1 in place without having to double the diskspace needed. It would be nice to add this option.

Upgrading with replacing the old version of concrete5 can be done now with, see:
So you don't need to much disk space.

When I try to update 5.7.1 to 5.7.2 I get the message "Unable to write to config/site.php. You must make config/site.php writable in order to upgrade in this manner." however as far as I'm aware there is no site.php in this version of concrete5

Uploading files through the File Manager works ok but now I get the following error when trying to do a file upload via a form..

An unexpected error occurred.

I upgrade 5.7.2 to on my local drive and with MAMP (this is not a live site, just local dev).

My site uses special a Page Type. The Page Type has 2 Text Area - Rich Text Attributes added.

Now, these pages show the content as HTML and not as styled text and images. For example, You should see "A sentence.", instead, you see "<p>A sentence.</p>"

When you edit the pages' in Composer, the content appears correctly in the editors. I also checked the data in the database table, and everything is correct. The data is HTML.

It's as if the HTML is being encoded with entities.

Has anyone else who upgraded experienced this? How do I fix it?
