    Dependency Updates

    Need to update PHP, Apache, or MariaDB on your webserver?
    Curator's upstream dependencies need to be upgraded every so often as well!


    First and foremost: ensure all relevant Windows Updates have been applied to your server.

    Next, update Curator dependencies.

    Curator bundles PHP and Apache upgrades into a simple utility package to make updating them as easy as possible.

    To update Curator's dependencies, simply download our Curator Dependency Update Utility.

    Once downloaded, simply double-click the utility to run updates. PHP and Apache will be upgraded automatically by this utility.

    Note: Internet access is required for this process. Systems without internet access will need to upgrade manually.

    To manually upgrade PHP, Apache, or MariaDB, download these utilities using the following links:

    1. PHP
    2. Apache
    3. MariaDB

    Note: To upgrade MariaDB, you will need your root database password.
    If you do not know this password, check your installation directory for an curator.txt file, which contains the default credentials.


    Linux's upstream repositories handle dependency updates, so first ensure you are running a recent version of Linux generally. If you're not sure, you can take a look at our recommended distrubutions on the Linux Installation page.

    To update Curator's Linux dependencies, SSH into your web server and cd into the webroot directory (typically /var/www/html) and ensure you're using a user that has full sudo access, and run the command below. This command will upgrade PHP, MariaDB, Apache, and any other operating system dependencies required by Curator:

    curl -s -o php_upgrade_util.sh https://api.curator.interworks.com/scripts/php_upgrade_util.sh && chmod +x ./php_upgrade_util.sh && ./php_upgrade_util.sh
