Upgrade from 1.5 to 3.0

Here is the situation. I have my store created with opencart 1.5.5.1. While that store was in use I have created a new one in different folder with opencart 3.0.2.0. All is done and now I would like to use the 3.0.2.0 version. So what I need is to move the version 3.0 from subfolder to the location of version 1.5 (root folder on my hosting account). What are the steps? Also can I use same database from 1.5 on 3.0 version? Any help would be greatly appreciate it. I don't need to transfer products or categories. New website 3.0 is completely ready. But I would like to import orders and customers from old version to new one if that is possible.

No, you can't use 1.5 database and files from 3.0.2.0.
You need to upgrade 1.5 database to 3.0.2.0.

So it will be better if I just create new MySQL database and perform fresh install of 3.0 in root folder?

The best if you install fresh OC3 version and upgrade the database only. You can do it on some another folder of your server and after you'll done just move to root. When you move it to the root, you'll need modify config.php and admin/config.php

In this case, you just need to make sure the OpenCart 3 store works properly before replace the old version.

1. Import customers and orders from OpenCart 1.5 to 3 using this OpenCart to OpenCart migration tool.
3. Zip entire the old store (backup).
4. Move the OpenCart 3 store to the root folder (zip and unzip into the root folder).
5. After that, change your store URL and all define directories in config.php and admin/config.php file.

Enjoy your new store!!!

Here are the steps you need to take
1. Migrate customers and orders from OC 1.5 to OC 3.0. There are a lot of automated tool allowing you to do this but you can consider LitExtension as it can migrate customers' password and SEO URLs also.
2. Delete your OC 1.5 (remember to back up your files first)
3. Copy OC 3.0 to the root folder where OC 1.5 used to be
4. Edit information in config.php and admin/config.php files
