Although the guide suggests here and here to use the Extension manager, Joomla developers made it impossible for this update to go this way. I've tried Extension manager (upload / url) and Joomla Updater (Live update / Upload & update with all 3 settings direct / hybrid / ftp). None worked and i came across a more simple approach. Here's how:
- Step 2: Download the update:
- Step 3: unzip the update (not sure if the overwrite flag is needed, but i suggest you try without it and in case it doesn't work, you can try again with it):
unzip -o /opt/bitnami/apps/joomla/htdocs/Joomla_3.6.x_to_3.6.1-Stable-Patch_Package.zip
- Step 4: Go inside Joomla Admin area and fix the database. You should be all set. You may want to clear all the cache.
Best of luck!
Edit: same applies to 3.6.2 update.
