Changes to the core model (adding/changing/removing database fields or tables), need to be applied to the XML schema files in core/model/schema/.

Once changes are made in the schema, they need to build to the model files for xPDO to use.


If you haven't already, make sure you've copied _build/build.properties.sample.php to _build/build.properties.php. No changes to the file are necessary.


Use Composer to run the build script for all schema files and build the model files:

composer run-script parse-schema


php composer.phar run-script parse-schema
