MyMuse uses Live Update from Akeebabackup. To get the new version, you must go to Components->MyMuse and click on Options at the top right. Enter your username and password from this site into the tab "Live Updates".
Go to Components->MyMuse and you will see a notice when there is a new version. Click on UPDATE FOUND! CLICK TO UPDATE and click to install the update.

If you see the error "Unable to open archive
Extracting the update package failed. Please try updating the extension manually". Please click on "Refresh Update Information" and try again.

The software will be updated.

You can also go to this site and download the latest version. Install the latest version. It will detect that MyMuse is already installed and not touch the database, simply overwriting old files with the new ones.

IMPORTANT: open Components->MyMuse->Store and save once to establish new options.

MyMuse does not update your store css file in case you have made changes.
If you have upgraded to MyMuse 3.4.2 or later, and use the templates that came with MyMuse, you will want to include this in your CSS:

/* Add to cart Modal */ #my_overlay { position: fixed; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; background: #000; opacity: 0.5; filter: alpha(opacity = 50); z-index: 1000; } #my_modal { position: fixed; background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.2); border-radius: 14px; padding: 8px; z-index: 1001; } #my_content { border-radius: 8px; background: #fff; padding: 20px; z-index: 1001; } #my_close { position: absolute; background: url('../images/close.png') 0 0 no-repeat; width: 24px; height: 27px; display: block; text-indent: -9999px; top: -7px; right: -7px; }

 The full CSS file can be found here.


UPGRADE FROM 2.5 to 3.x

Make a copy of your 2.5 site. Install the latest version of MyMuse 2.5.
Just BEFORE you use Joomla's updater, administrator/index.php?option=com_joomlaupdate, install MyMuse version 3. It will not work with your 2.5 site but now the files are in place. Do your Joomla Update to 3.x.

If your site is too complex for the Joomla Updater, use some third party upgrader. I recommend SP Upgrade.
Then install MyMuse 3.x.
Copy the database tables from the 2.5 site to the 3.x site (you may need to change the table prefix).
Copy all your files, for example from /images/MyMuse_Downloads to the new site.
Copy all other images you need to the same folders on the new site.
Re-install the latest MyMuse component which may have database updates.

IMPORTANT: open Components->MyMuse->Store and save once to establish new options.
