Please upgrade here. These earlier versions are no longer being updated and have security issues.

What does running the following do: /index.php?p=/utility/update

I just upgraded to 2.1.12p3 on my development server and everything seemed to be working okay before I ran /index.php?p=/utility/update, so I was just wondering, what does updating the utility actually do?

    It makes sure your database is up to date.

  • Up to date meaning it adds additional tables/rows/columns that the new release might need and/or updating old ones? Just curious.

    I'm really enjoying Vanilla - thanks for building it.

    They update the Vanilla's database to correspond to tour version of Vanilla, all changés needed.

    Correct. Vanilla as well as plugins define a structure for the database. This definition is "reread" when you call this function.
