2 Answers 2


Using composer,

Go to your system root using command line, run below command,

composer require "magento/product-community-edition:2.1.2" --no-update
composer update

After complete clean cache, run setup and deploy command

 php bin/magento cache:clean
 php bin/magento setup:upgrade
 php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
 php bin/magento indexer:reindex

For composer update (recommended) you can follow steps specified in this stackexchange thread which are also given below.

composer require magento/product-community-edition 2.1.2 --no-update
composer update
rm -rf var/di var/generation var/view_preprocessed var/cache var/page_cache
chown -R user:group .
chmod u+x bin/magento
bin/magento cache:flush
bin/magento setup:upgrade
bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
bin/magento indexer:reindex
  • Does upgrading from older to newer version affects Data Loss? We have to take backup before Upgrading? Oct 13, 2016 at 11:59
  • Backup should be taken every time before doing upgrades etc. In my case there was no data loss and site is working normally as it should.
