How to upgrade to#

We assume you are upgrading from django CMS 3.11.1.

Please make sure that your current database is consistent and in a healthy state, and make a copy of the database before proceeding further.

Check your settings of CMS_LANGUAGES (if used), as it was ignored by default in preceding versions. For more information, please see:

Then run:

python migrate  # to ensure that your database is up-to-date with migrations
python cms fix-tree

Check custom code and third-party applications for use of deprecated or removed functionality or APIs (see above). Some third-party components may need to be updated.

Install the new version of django CMS from GitHub or via pip.


python migrate
