Package Signatures

TYPO3 Release Packages (the downloadable tarballs and zip files) as well as Git tags are signed using PGP signatures during the automated release process. Besides that, MD5 and SHA2-256 hashes are being generated for these files. Find more details on verifying signatures and hashes in the infrastructure guide.

Example of verifying integrity of tar.gz package of current release:

wget --content-disposition https://get.typo3.org/9.5.18/tar.gz
wget --content-disposition https://get.typo3.org/9.5.18/tar.gz.sig
gpg --verify typo3_src-9.5.18.tar.gz.sig typo3_src-9.5.18.tar.gz


The usual upgrading procedure applies. No database updates are necessary. It might be required to clear all caches; the "important actions" section in the TYPO3 Install Tool offers the accordant possibility to do so.

Upgrade Wizard - Manual actions required

Sites that were upgraded from an older TYPO3 version to TYPO3 v9 LTS before version 9.5.11 (<9.5.11) most probably require the invocation of "Update backend user configuration array" upgrade wizard - this can be done in the backend interface at Admin Tools > Upgrade > Upgrade Wizard. This wizard was introduced with TYPO3 v9.5.11, the necessity to run it was not emphasized enough back then.
