Installation & First Steps

Step 1: Check your Version

First of all, it is important to choose the right product version for your project. In order to be able to determine this, it is relevant which WoltLab Suite version is used for your project. We have oriented ourselves to the product versions of the WoltLab Suite, the first two version numbers of the core are relevant, a small overview and an example:


WoltLab Suite Core Version 3.0.X corresponds to the product version 3.0.X

WoltLab Suite Core Version 3.1.X corresponds to the product version 3.1.X

WoltLab Suite Core Version 5.2.X corresponds to the product version 5.2.X

( "X" serves as a placeholder and stands for any version number )


Example:

If you are using WoltLab Suite Core 5.2.6, the latest product version with version number 5.2.X would be the right one for you. (For example 5.2.0).

The following applies here: the higher the last version number, the more up-to-date the product version - the highest number therefore corresponds to the current status.

If you are not sure which WoltLab Suite Core Version you are using, you can easily find out:

To do this, log into your ACP (= Admin ControlPanel (also called Administration)) and switch to "Configuration" in the left sidebar and then to the "Packages" menu item. Look for the "WoltLab Suite Core" package (ID: 1) in the package list and look up your version number of the WoltLab Suite Core.

Step 2: Download your Product

Now that you have determined the correct version for your project, you only need to download it. Also make sure to download the correct version.
