To update Drupal modules, you will need to follow these steps:

  1. Download the latest version of the module from the Drupal website or from the module's project page.
  2. Backup your website. This is important in case something goes wrong during the update process.
  3. Disable the module that you want to update. You can do this by going to the "Modules" page in your Drupal administrative dashboard and unchecking the box next to the module's name.
  4. Replace the old version of the module with the new version. You can do this by uploading the new module files to your server using FTP, or by using the "Update" tab on the "Modules" page in your Drupal administrative dashboard.
  5. Enable the updated module. You can do this by going to the "Modules" page in your Drupal administrative dashboard and checking the box next to the module's name.
  6. Clear the cache. This is important to ensure that your website is using the latest version of the module.
  7. Test the updated module to make sure that it is working properly.


Keep in mind that some modules may require additional steps to update, such as running database updates or updating module-specific configuration settings. It is always a good idea to read the module's documentation before updating to see if there are any special instructions that you need to follow.

To update Drupal modules, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Drupal website as an administrator.
  2. Go to the "Extend" page, which can be found in the admin toolbar or by navigating to "/admin/modules" in the browser.
  3. On the "Extend" page, you will see a list of all the installed modules. Check the "Update available" filter to only display modules that have updates available.
  4. Select the modules you want to update by checking the checkbox next to each module.
  5. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "Update" button.
  6. Drupal will start updating the selected modules. This process may take a few moments, depending on the number and size of the modules being updated.
  7. After the update is complete, you will see a confirmation message. Review any update notifications or release notes provided and take note of any additional steps or settings that may need to be addressed after the update.
  8. It is recommended to clear the Drupal cache after module updates. You can do this by going to the "Performance" page (usually found at "/admin/config/development/performance") and clicking on the "Clear all caches" button.
  9. Finally, test the updated modules to ensure they are functioning as expected.


Note: Before updating modules, it is always a good practice to backup your Drupal website and database to avoid any potential issues or data loss during the update process.
