Why is upgrading opencart versions always such an pain in the ass...

I'm trying to update my opencart version from the 2.0.1.1 version to 2.1.0.2 the update tool from opencart fails really hard.. missing all kind of database tables. Now I've installed an complete new version of 2.1.0.2 and merged my database to it and still it claims it's missing some database tables.... merging my old files and overwriting them with the newer files gives me all kind of issues. The list is just to long to even report here...

Why is updating opencart not like updating wordpress?
This is keeping me back for updating to a newer version, I'll just wait until my version is way to old and then rebuild the whole system it seems better and easyier then this normal way.

Hi veenie,

The OpenCart upgrade scripts are broken... The best you can does it to upgrade to 2.1.0.x then to 2.2.0.0. I have just posted the v2.2.0.0 upgrade script for testing.

Upgrade to 2.1.0.x - http://www.randemsystems.com/support/op ... n-2-1-0-1/
Upgrade from 2.1.0.x to 2.2.0.0 - http://www.randemsystems.com/support/op ... 0/#msg6260

NEVER take serious; anyone who gives negative impact statements with no ABSOLUTE proof!

I would try to upgrade to 2.1.0.x first then to v2.2.0.0. I believe that is your best bet...
