Updating FaxStore


Updating FaxStore after a new release is one of the easiest things that can be done. To update your version of FaxStore follow the quicksteps below.

FaxStore automatically updates your config.json and your database.

Step 1

Download the latest version from your downloads page at faxes.zone.

Step 2

Connect to your machine and navigate to the directory where FaxStore is located, WinSCP is a great FTP viewing program for this.

Step 4

Update the contents of the /src folder along with the below listed items. You can always replace all items. However, you may lose logos, backgrounds and config files.

Other files:

  • index.js
  • /views
  • package.json
  • /public/themes
  • /public/assets/icons.svg
  • /public/assets/main.css
  • /public/assets/main.js

Also always make sure to read the release information as it may require something different too.

Step 5

Now you have replaced the required files. Now just start FaxStore again and it will automatically update any config and database information

Updating to 1.9

1.9 includes a major update and change to how the files are stored. This requires different action than the basic update. So let's dive into it.

Firstly you will need to shut down FaxStore so it's not online.

  1. Delete the following files; /views, backend.js, index.js, updatemanager.js, package.json
  2. Place the following items from the download into your FaxStore;
    index.js, /src, package.json, /public/themes, /views, /public/assets/icons.svg, /public/assets/main.css, /public/assets/main.js.
  3. Now you will need to make sure you're on the correct Node.Js version for this update.
    Follow this article for details on how to update https://docs.faxes.zone/c/knowledgebase/updatenode
  4. Now that Node.Js has updated run npm i to update our packages. If there's any warnings run npm audit fix --force.
  5. Now start up FaxStore again and you're job is done.
