Forgotten but how do I do an automatic upgrade? Not sure if I have turned this off I cant remember, Under the Registration/update button in the admin area there is nothing to click. Sure I did it here before!

It will show up eventually, it takes some time before the cache is cleared to detect there's a new version

Yeah it showed up, I clicked update and it took a little while but said it failed and that I had to update manually. But it shows that I now have 3.6.11 and there are new features installed.

Will it be safe to use or not? It has not crashed or anything.

yes it will. Sometimes the auto-upgrade process fails to report back that completion was successful, but if from admin->maintenance you see that both your data and code are on 3.6.11, you're good to go

I use 3.6.9 open source version (community)

How I can update it? Has community version "update button"?

Should I only replace files (except Database configuration file and templates)? Or i need replace files and change Database? Which SQL requests i need to do?
