It would be interesting to know how others work with Open Cart.

Right now I am upgrading from 1.4.9.6 to 1.5.4.1:
1) I made a copy of my store folder and stored it in another folder on my web server ("new-store"). Copied the whole DB into a new DB.
2) Upgraded my "new-store" with the script and put all files of the new version into it.
3) Working with the design of the new store folder (made of course a new theme folder and put the changes into that folder)
4) When I am satisfied with the new site, I will take the actual live-store-DB and run the upgrade script, change the config files and copy all files to my live-store-DB. Then my site will be upgraded to 1.5.4.1.

How are you working with major upgrades? Is there a smarter way to do it? Do you have a local server running on your computer and which software are you using? (I use a web hosting provider and use Coda 2).

Thanks for sharing your thoughts! :)

What you have listed sounds just fine. Using a local environment is always a great way to work efficiently as well. I would recommend using WAMP or XAMPP O0
