Convert global Extensions

If you use global extensions, convert them to local ones.

Global extensions used to be saved in folders inside typo3/ext/, such as typo3/ext/realurl. In current versions of TYPO3, this location should no longer be used. Instead, use local extensions below typo3conf/ext/.

To convert a global extension to a local one, do the following:

  • Go to the Extension Manager.
  • Uninstall the global extension.
  • Delete the files of the extension from typo3/ext/, including the directory of that extension itself.
  • Reinstall the extension from TER, which will put it into typo3conf/ext/.
