Website interface 1.6 upgrade

From the Repository drop-down box choose eZ-system then click “Change repository” button. From the list of available packages remove following packages:

Next change repository again to the “eZ-systems” and click on “Import new package” button. In the next view select "ezwebin_extension" and click “Import package” button. Once the "ezwebin_extension" is imported click on “Install package”. In the next view choose “Replace extension” option and click “Continue” button. Repeat these steps for rest of new extensions ("ezstarrating_extension", "ezgmaplocation_extension" and "ezwt_extension").

$ php bin/php/ezpgenerateautoloads.php -e -p

Once the upgrade script is done, you need to clear the cache by executing following command from eZ Publish root folder:

php bin/php/ezcache.php --clear-all --purge
