The Update.System for ZOO is simple tool for creating update servers which used in Joomla! Update System.
If You use catalog of files which builded at Zoo applications then this plugin helps create a manifest of extensions for quickly automating the process to check all installed extensions and update them from the extension manager. This will help to ensure that site owners are always notified of when a new version of their installed extensions is available.


The Update.System for ZOO will only work correctly if your setup meets next requirements and dependencies.
Important: I can only provide support for setups that do not have extension files or Joomla! core files which have been altered in any way.

  3. Go to the Joomla Extension Manager (Joomla Administration / Extensions / Extension Manager / Install).
