Installing an Extension¶
Before installing an extension it is recommended to back up the database and the application source code. There is no simple way to uninstall an extension.
You can install extensions from the command-line.
Start with upgrading Composer to the latest version. This may be needed in case the extension to be
installed uses some bleeding edge feature in its
$ composer self-update # add and download extension
Then, install the extension’s Composer package using the Composer
$ composer require <extension name>:<extension-version> --prefer-dist --update-no-dev
Next, remove old cache:
sudo rm -rf var/cache/prod
Repeat this for any other extension you want to install. When you are finished with adding new
packages, use the
oro:platform:update command to make the application aware of the newly
$ php bin/console oro:platform:update --env=prod --force
Finally, make sure to properly clean the cache:
$ php bin/console cache:clear --env=prod
