Support documentation / Updating Enhance

ℹ️ Enhance updates are not forced. We strongly recommend that you keep your Enhance installation up to date with the latest Core and Appcd version.

Update types

You will be notified when a Core or Appcd update is available.


A Core update is platform wide and includes API and UI updates.


An Appcd update is run on a per server basis, it includes provisioning, performance and security updates for PHP containers and website hosting.



ℹ️ We recommend running Enhance updates off peak or at times of lower traffic to minimize disruption to customers.

Core updates

A Core Enhance update can be manually triggered directly from within your control panel. Each update will be accompanied by release notesdetail what is included in the latest update.

To run a core Enhance update:

  1. Open ‘Settings’ in the left side bar
  2. Click ‘Platform’
  3. Navigate to 'Software updates'
  4. Select 'Update now' to run the update


This will trigger the orchestration layer to update and the control panel to refresh. This will take a few seconds. In the background the orchestration layer will update the services on all of your servers. As each container restarts there will be a short amount of downtime on each services as it restarts.

Any change in disk usage will be minimal as the previous container gets deleted as part of each Enhance update.
