Hey community,

I've been using OctoberCMS for a little while and I really like using this CMS. One issue that i have continued to have ever since using OctoberCMS is that every once in a while when I am prompted to update or update the backend through the updater it breaks the backend of the CMS. When that happens dropdown links don't work, some elements are aligned out of place such as the user link. Every time that has happened in the past i had to just delete my current install and reinstall the software again. Why does this keep happening? and are they any solutions to fix and prevent this from happening whenever I update the backend.

Here is a screen shot of the broken backend after the update:

Im running the CMS on my VPS on a LEMP stack.

Any help would be appreciated.

Are you using a public directory with your October installation? http://octobercms.com/docs/setup/configuration#public-folder

Yes i am thats if you are referring to having access to the public directory. This issue has continued to happen to me. Im using a Digital Ocean VPS with a LEMP stack. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue when it happens or how to prevent this issue form occurring in the future.

You need to run php artisan october:mirror public --relative from the root october directory after every update if you're using a public directory to protect the site.

Will this keep the backend from breaking after updates?

Hi Luke What if I don't have that permissions?
