This tutorial assumes you already have 0.9.9a. running and have Composer installed. If you have not completed these steps the Getting Started tutorial will catch you up to speed. 

Step One: Update Composer

Open Terminal (You can access this in cPanel) navigate to your directory and update composer by typing

 php composer.phar update

and then run the command you should see the following

[jgregory@devo ~]$ cd public_html/quickthoughts
[jgregory@devo quickthoughts]$ php composer.phar update
Loading composer repositories with package information
Updating dependencies (including require-dev)
Package operations: 0 installs, 2 updates, 0 removals
  - Updating symfony/polyfill-mbstring (v1.10.0 => v1.11.0): Downloading (100%)
  - Removing mapkyca/php-ogp (dev-master 35c713f)
  - Installing mapkyca/php-ogp (dev-master e2c4e35): Cloning e2c4e35b8f from cache
Writing lock file
Generating autoload files
[jgregory@devo quickthoughts]$e 

Step Two: Download the Latest Package

Go to @mapkyca's site and get the latest package. Look at the dates carefully . The latest package is at the bottom of the list. You want the .zip file. 

Step Three: BackUp

You could and probably will mess this up. Create a back up before you begin.n In cPanel click on My Apps. Find your Known site and click Back Up Now.


Step Four: Upload the New Package

You could upload through terminal but this requires some additional extra steps. i still often up FileZilla and move files through SFTP.

If you made any changes to your theme or the CSS project make sure you do not overwrite these files, or just use your backed up version and push your CSS changes and theme after you update.
