Hi,

Maybe i'm not searching correct, but i want to know how to upgrade from 2.0.3.1 to the newest opencart version.
I cannot find a simple tutorial or something.

Please advice or a link where it is explained.

Thanks

Newbie

Ah, that's a pain, if you do it yourself. Definitely won't be upgraded properly, if you just upload new version and hit Upgrade. OpenCart had thee major changes since 2.0.3.1 - at 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3. And its upgrading functionality is literally nil.

I remember somebody offered an upgrade script, but I don't remember, which versions it was compatible with. Try to search forums by "upgrade" keyword.

The upgrade script in v2.3.0.2 works just fine. Depending on how you perform the upgrade, you'll need to remove the additional extension files since they have been moved on the 2.3.0.2 version and the upgrade script doesn't address that.

Remember to ALWAYS backup your current store and attempt the upgrade in a subfolder or subdomain on a new copy of your database.

Nope, it doesn't and it actually never did. It doesn't upgrade database tables, which messes things up completely. This is why there's a custom upgrade script somewhere on these forums, maintained by one of the developers.

The custom script is available in the forums for Qphoria and I have confirmed with him that it's the same script included in the 2.3.0.2 download.

Ah, so Daniel finally added a custom upgrade script in OpenCart core? Nice to hear that.

Funny, I just downloaded the official Download:
define('VERSION', '2.3.0.2');
and it contains no file, later than 01.08.2016,
but, at least, this upmost informative upgrade info still exists:

Code: Select all

///////////////////////////////////////
///    OpenCart V1.5.x TO 1.5.x     ///
///      Upgrade Instructions       ///
I just hope, this place here does not take as long, to work again in full, or then, I fear,
it would not longer be needed... :-\
