reworking on my website
so upgrading it from 1.5 to 1.565

should I copy all files ( overwrite) old existing files.
No I don't know if any changes were made
but something we can always work on.

just use the config admin/config from old 1.5

will that be okay?

or I might get error


in database I only need products and category data.,

because last one month i have been adding products

Thankyou

Why not 2.3.0.2?

OC 2.3.0.2 | OC 3.0.3.6 | Extensions converted by me | Buy me a beer

Probably, because he/she does not want to start from scratch, confronted
with a different admin Section, OcMod, and the need for new Extensions ... :laugh:

Well, you better download my latest Version v.1.5.6.5_rc from this Site:
https://github.com/IP-CAM/Opencart-1.5. ... se-Version
---
It has been updated, by example, with that (int) thing, in a range of 'controller' files:

Code: Select all

if (isset($this->request->get['page'])) {
	$page = (int)$this->request->get['page'];
	} else {
	$page = 1;
}
and a PHP v.7.4.x capable system/library/encryption.php file is already included,
to make this Version 1.5.6.5_rc work up to latest PHP v.7.4.9 , as tested so far.
---
Use this base for all further work. It still contains the non-responsive default Theme,
and you're free, to add whatever responsive OC v.1.5.6.4 - type Theme you like. All of
your existing 1.5.6.4+ Extensions should further work as planned, I assume, except for
eventual changes, to be made, to match a Bootstrap Type Theme.
---
A rather interesting VqMod Concept from legendary OpenShop Designer MaxD exists,
it's called VqMod-Pro. Contrary to 'regular' VqMod Engines, it creates all VqCached Files
at once, not only the one's, created on the 'first call' of such Pages/Files, and that add's to overall
performance and stability. It run's SWELL, and it so even find's existing Misses in VqCache Files,
not yet even called by a Visitor or Admin. This is a big Advantage, to know AHEAD, where a
VqMod Extension will eventually fail! And combined with a good VqCache-Remover Tool, it does
a great Job.
http://www.ipc.li/os/vqmodpro.zip
---
Also get this System Information Tool, to find out easy, what's important to know:
http://www.ipc.li/os/echothemes_oc_syst ... mation.zip
---
And if you need a highly efficient Bootstrap Theme, the famous MERKENT Theme
is working on several of my Test Sites. It includes a dark and bright themed stylesheet, and
it's quite easy to edit, if one has need for some changes:
http://www.ipc.li/os/merkent_theme_301_2016.zip
---
One could also opt for my OC V_PRO Version, it has been Theme-designed originally by
PEKU and he implanted the default OC v.2.0.3.1 Theme into his 1.5.6.5_rc Engine.
This way, one has some Alternatives, if looking for a Custom Theme, because a range of
NEAR-OC 2.0.3.1-DEFAULT type Themes exist in the OC Extension Section, and usually,
only a handful of theme-related Files are needed, (and party changed a little) to get a
different design.
https://github.com/IP-CAM
---
PEKU's latest Opencart 1.5.6.5 Edge Oc-v.2.0.3.1 themed Installation is also still alive, then,
you'll have both VqMod and OcMod included. What is not, what I really like, but for testing, it's ok.
But I did not try this Software for some years, and can therefore not comment on it, when it comes
to Updates and/or Fixes made, during the Years:
https://github.com/pekka2/Opencart-1.5.6.5-Edge

Or then, implant Peku's aged OC2-Theme-to_OC_156 into my 1.5.6.5_rc default Github Download:
http://www.ipc.li/os/OC2_theme.zip
It's a rather comprehensive Amount of Code, including a variety of additional Styles, Bootstrap,
Scripts, Font-Awesome Code, Code Files and more, required, to handle a regular OC v.2.0.3.1 coded
Theme in a v.1.5.6.x ! The Download might still have some Misses, it's an old release, and no longer
offered in Public.
( It's great for those, interested to know, what it took, to implement OC2 Themes into 1.5.6.4 )

But better either remove/disable the OcMod Installation, which is part of PEKU's Extension, :laugh:
or then, convert your VqMod Files to OcMod, and forget VqMod, if you like OcMod
better. It only depends on, how much 'Individuality' one plans to implement into such a Software, they
both do (basically) exactly the same, just in quite different ways ... :laugh:

I once even created a v.1.5.6.5 Admin OcMod Editor, based on some OC-2 Extension, just for trying it out:
http://www.ipc.li/os/ocmod-editor-1565.ocmod.zip
---
PS: Theme Downloads might not work well in Peku's latest Release. They could still have some
slight/minor misses in certain Parts and/or Sections, but they can be fixed quite easy.
---
Existing 1.5.6.4 Extensions, involved somewhere in visual design, most likely need to be
reworked, to match the responsive Theme Content, just to have this mentioned as well.
---
So, do, whatever you want. the Merkent Theme Option is easier to handle, but Peku's
2.0.3.1 Theme Style Design looks and acts more like later Versions default OC Themes do.
So much for now ... ;)

And don't ask me, if OcMod oder VqMod is better, just compare it with two nice + useful Chicks or Fellows.
If you wanna use 'em both for good, then better not at the same time, or in the same Place, or such might
end up in great frustration ... :laugh:
Good Luck!

PS: Please NOTE: Some of the Downloads, listed above, are NO LONGER available
