hi all, i can find upgrade instructions for upgrading from v2 to v3, but not on how to upgrade from a current v3 to the latest version 3, eg 3.0.1.1 to 3.0.2.0 .

Is the process the same?

- Make a full backup of your store, including database
- Install the fresh and next OC version on a separate folder
- Run the /install folder with your current config.php, admin/config.php and .htaccess files (ensure to edit their server paths prior to run the upgrade)
- Once the upgrade completed, remove the original store path from your host file manager console
- Rename your new folder back to the old folder
- Re-edit your config.php, admin/config.php files and .htaccess with their relative paths
- Re-upload all your images
- Make a backup of your store and database again
- Ensure each extensions you have either downloaded free or purchased from the Marketplace and / or from any 3rd party websites they are compatible with the OC version you are using before installing them on your upgraded store
- All done!

That sounds very convoluted, as you're essentially just uploading the new core files on top of the existing, and then running the install, correct (although you're doing it a longer way round)?

While it may be my own suggestion, never to upload files on existing files when upgrading. Always upload fresh on a new separate folder. While it may take longer, at least, you'll have a so-called stable platform compared to the additional and unsupported errors you may encounter aside.

Surely just make a full copy of the site then copy the new files over it and do some testing.
