I couldn't find this answer on your Forum.

What is the best way to upgrade the GitHUB version of your software?

Should I just ftp over the new new files? Or do I have to consider database changes as well?

Thank you for creating such great software!

Get the .ZIP file from github.com/fisharebest/webtrees/archive/master.zip

It's just like a normal upgrade - overwrite the existing files with ones from the .ZIP file using FTP.

The new version WILL update the database structure automatically. You cannot downgrade. If you think you might want to downgrade, then create a database backup first.
