jDownloads version 4 Stable

  • The range of functions in the first versions was almost identical to that of the previous version 3.9.
  • But new functions and features will be added step by step in later versions.

Important information

  • It is not possible to upgrade directly from the much older version 3.2.x to version 4! In such cases, it is always necessary to upgrade to version 3.9 first. Only then can an update to version 4 be carried out.
  • If you want to update an existing jDownloads installation 3.9.x to version 4, please watch this PDF tutorial first: 

  • For the update, however, at least version 3.9.8.6 must be installed! This must be done before you switch to Joomla 4, after that it is no longer possible!
  • If the update attempt is aborted with a message about corrupt DB tables, please read the instructions here to solve the problem.
  • Also, always make a complete backup before updating!
  • As always, we accept no liability for any data loss.
  • If you find and report a bug, we aim to fix it as quickly as possible. This will be helped when reporting a bug to give relevant details so we are able to reproduce the problem.

Our special thanks go to the many users who had signed up to participate in the extensive testing.

Developers whose Joomla extensions support jDownloads in any way, or have developed their own plugins or modules for this purpose, must rework their extensions a little bit to be compatible with jDownloads 4.

 We are proud to present the new  jDownloads version 3.9.x. This is a stable release and should be your choice when you are starting with jDownloads in Joomla 3.9.

Our aim for the new version is, as far as possible, to support the new and recently added functions of the current Joomla! Version 3.9 and to integrate them into jDownloads.  But it was also necessary to remove or change some of the older parts of jDownloads.  This means that version 3.9.x will not be backwards compatible with version 3.2.  

If  you are upgrading from an existing 3.2 installation to the new version 3.9.x please see the upgrading guide .  It is an easy, multistep upgrade, not complicated a migration! 

If you are installing jDownloads for the first time then see the article first time installation.

Important: This version is not compatible with Joomla 4.x. A compatible version is in work and will be published in 2022.
