I have a customer on Magento 188.8.131.52 that wanted to upgrade to version 2, but we have abandoned that as the theme is use wouldn't convert. So they want to go to the latest 1.9.x release instead.
Can anyone give me instructions on the best way to do this please?
I keep seeing reference to SUPEE-7405 v 1.0 patch before doing anything, but I can't find the download for this
If anyone could give me both the instructions and the URL for all the downloads I would need, that would be great
Thanks & Regards
You can check which patches you'll need: http://fabrizioballiano.net/magento-patches/ (this isn't an official list but it helps)
Then you'll need to apply each one to those missing patches on your store.
Another way (don't do it if you're not completely sure) is to download 184.108.40.206 and override all Magento files.
Thanks for the response. I hardly know Magento at all, so if there's a quicker way to do it all in one hit, I'm all for that!
Is the download and subsequent install just a set of files to overwrite on the existing site - i.e. no database conversions/updates or site reconfiguring?
Basically any possible database upgrade will be executed by the Magento installers on each module.
If you're not sure I sugegst to contact qualified help. Isn't hard. You don't need a lot of time neither.
But maybe you'll prefer to get some help in case of any trouble.
Patches can be applied using the command line (here's an official document: http://info2.magento.com/rs/magentosoftware/images/Installing-a-Patch-for-Magento-Community-Edition.... )

Can I set up a clean 220.127.116.11 install and just export my data from 18.104.22.168?
That to me seems the easiest route.
You should be able to do that (there aren't risky changes at database level).
Please remember to make a BACKUP of everything before (just in case you need to go back to the previous state).
Would love to hear if the upgrading from 22.214.171.124 to 126.96.36.199 went smoothly as I'm looking to do the same.
I tried to upgrade Magento from 188.8.131.52 to latest version 184.108.40.206, but in the system log we are getting the following error and site is broken(Both Frontend and Backend).
Deprecated functionality: iconv_set_encoding(): Use of iconv.internal_encoding is deprecated in /var/www/html/strategic/lib/Zend/Locale/Format.php
Any suggestions..... Please.....
I'm not fully sure but I guess is related with the PHP version.
Which version are you using?
Maybe this patch can help you? https://gist.github.com/renttek/29beaaa1e90909639501
