On March 5th 2012, the Joomla team released Joomla 2.5.2. It was a security release, so it is very important to upgrade your version of Joomla to the latest version. In a previous article, we walked you through the steps for installing Joomla 2.5.1. If you have this version installed (or any other version at or after Joomla 1.6), follow the steps below to upgrade to Joomla 2.5.2

To upgrade to Joomla 2.5.2:

  1. Log into your Joomla Dashboard
  2. Find and click the icon labeled Joomla 2.5.2 Update Now!
    click-update-now
  3. Put a check in the box next to the Joomla update file (see screenshot below) and click Update in the top right menu
    check-the-update-and-click-update
  4. When the update has completed, you will see a success message similar to Updating file was successful. You will also see the version number at the bottom of the page update to Joomla 2.5.2 (refer to the screenshot below)
    updating-file-was-successful

Congratulations, you have just upgrade from Joomla 2.5.1 to Joomla 2.5.2!
