Hi there. I have purchased a business which uses OpenCart Version
I am very new to using websites and am finding it quite difficult to update my website. Would it be beneficial to upgrade my version of OpenCart?
Also, is it possible to create a 'draft' website to be able to see how it looks before making it live?
I appreciate your time and help.

Kind Regards
Samantha :)

Well, if you're not familiar with OpenCart, better don't try, or you will end up
in frustration only. It would then only be beneficial for a professional, but
sure not for you, and it could cost you a lot of money, to make it work again.

Better tell us, if the Shop is working now, and possibly add a link to the shop,
so, one could find out, what you have, and how it now looks. And then, I could
tell you, what needs to be done, to possibly improve your Installation, to meet
latest specifications, without destroying a working installation.

Always test test test on live shops before doing anything. Cloning your site and performing a test upgrade in a sub folder would be a good idea. :)
