Updating Drupal Contributed Modules


Drupal's contributed projects tend to move more quickly than Drupal core and there- fore require more updates within a Drupal version's life cycle. You can upgrade multiple modules at the same time, although it's best to do one at a time to reduce the chance of errors, and to allow you to isolate problems that might come up during an upgrade. In this lesson we will look at our Available Updates report, and use the Update Manager to upgrade a few of our contributed modules.
