Upgrading TinyMCE Self-hosted manually

To upgrade to TinyMCE 5.7 using a manually downloaded package:

  1. Backup the tinymce/ directory so any customizations can be restored after the upgrade.

    Customizations for TinyMCE are typically stored in the following directories:

     tinymce/
     ├── icons/
     ├── langs/
     ├── plugins/
     ├── skins/
     │   ├── content/
     │   └── ui/
     └── themes/
    
  2. Download the latest version of TinyMCE.

    • For the TinyMCE Community Version, download tinymce_<VERSION>.zip from Get TinyMCE - Self-hosted releases, where <VERSION> is the latest version of TinyMCE.
    • For the TinyMCE Enterprise Version, download the TinyMCE Enterprise Bundle from Tiny Account > Downloads. The downloaded file will be named enterprise_latest.zip.
  3. Extract the downloaded .zip file to a temporary location.
  4. (If required) Install the latest language packs from Get TinyMCE - Language Packages.

    • Custom icons packs
    • Custom plugins
    • Custom skins
    • Custom themes
