Hello All,

I appologize if this has been answered I have looked and did not find a topic. I just installed the Drupal Turnkey Server and it is telling me that I need to do a manual update of the core. I am new to Drupal and I am used to the "update" button in Wordpress. Can anyone give me any insight on how I go about doing this? Any help would be great.

Installed version is 7.39 / Recommbed version is 7.41

If you're used to WordPress then Drupal may be a bit of a learning curve. It's an incredibly powerful CMS but obviously greater complexity comes with that...

The TurnKey Drupal appliances come with a commandline tool called "drush". Drush makes it easy to update from the commandline; like this:

drush up drupal # up = pm-update
On a clean install (with no data) you can skip the backup:
drush up --no-backup drupal
For a production site you may only wish to install security updates:
drush up --security-only drupal
To see what version of Drupal you have:
drush status drupal
To refresh the update info and show available versions:
drush rf # pm-refresh
drush rl # pm-releases
