Yetishare v5.4.0 Released!

By Adam posted on 20th April 2023

Hi all,

We've just released Yetishare v5.4.0 via your account on If you login and you're still within support, you'll see the link to download.

You can see it up and running on our demo site:
(login with user: 'admin' & pass: 'Password@Demo')

Overview of changes:

This release includes a number of changes based on user feedback, such as PHP 8.2 support, LiteSpeed support, lots of core performance improvements, user action logging & file manager UI updates. We'd also added server resource monitoring, so you can track usage of actual HD space, memory, CPU load and network connections on storage servers.

Another addition is the new search widget in the admin area, it should make navigating and finding admin area items a lot more intuitive. We've also added a server availability checker for 'direct' storage servers. If a server becomes unavailable, it'll be automatically removed from the available upload server pool.

See the release notes below for a full list of changes.

How to install or upgrade:

Upload the /install folder to your website and load in a browser. Follow the steps on the "Upgrade from v5.x" tab, we're happy to help if you get stuck!
