Hello.
Is there is any instructions about the procedure of the upgrade from 3.0.3.6 to the latest OC version ?
What happens with the db ? Are the tables are different to try a directly transfer of the tables data to the new OC version db ?
Thanks

Well, if you really want to upgrade, better use, what's already known to work. OC v.4.x still seems to be in it's late development stage, and it takes quite some work, to re-use anything on data from former OC Versions. Just to have warned you ;) ...

Don't the upgrade function, it will fail in m9ost cases. We recommend the 3.0.x.x branch which is based on the OC 3.0.3.9, see also this forum post.

Do a fresh install, and then add all your extensions and themes. The 3.0.x.x branch is highly backward-compatible with 3.0.3.6 in terms of extensions used. You can use the free Export/Import tool to copy your old product data over to the new one. See also our FAQ.

If you want to with OpenCart 4, then you should wait for at least the upcoming 4.0.2.4, because OpenCart 4 is still subject to development and bugfixes. IMHO the 3.0.x.x branch currently is the most stable one and has the most 3rd party extensions available for it, too.

define('VERSION', '4.0.2.4');

No version 4.0.2.4 has been released. It would appear at https://github.com/opencart/opencart/releases if it had. Just because the version is changed in the source code does not mean a release has been made.

Even if the 4.0.2.4 will be out ,is there any instructions how to upgrade?
I am wondering if I am the only one in the world with the 3.0.3.6 version who wants to upgrade to the latest OC version .
Thanks

I used Opencart for many years and it was a good eCommerce system for me in the start, bought many plugins, but then i found it to be very difficult every time i wanted to upgrade to a newer version it was a "project" with many errors and difficulties, wasnt easy. Also didnt always find the "right" plugins for my purposes, had to hire a developer to create a plugin from scratch.

Now after a few years with OC i have started migrating to Woocommerce, It is much more fun to work with, there are plugins for everything, and easier with the upgrades.

But i had a fun ride with OC and will miss my history with it :)

The problem with woocommerce is that wordpress is always needing security patches and updates, and lots of plugins that update at different rates means that there are often conflicts. Not to mention the same issues with themes and clanky thene builders.
I have worked with woocommerce (through necessity) quite a lot and way prefer Opencart. It's pretty bulletproof and now 3.9 version is out with support for newer PHP I will always prefer to work with it.
For a simple setup woocommerce can work fine but Opencart is a true ecommerce framework while woocommerce will always be a plugin for an overgrown, clunky CMS that is wordpress!

Uk based Opencart Developer. Love building and ranking with Opencart. Opencart > All the others!
