I'm very discouraged.
Updated Magento from 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 using the Magento Connect site.
Now, my site i giving me 500 errors across the board. Nothing is coming online at all.
I'm currently on hold at Godaddy, suffering through their terrible 'on-hold' music hoping that they have any clues, but I doubt they will.
Changing code on live site is not a smartest move ever. But ...
This is PHP error. What do log files say (Magento project var/log folder)?
This tool will remove your worries. I used it to migrate from Magento 1.8 to 1.9.2 without any errors and fortunately with no downtime, my site still run normally when migrating .Highly recommend . Check out it here http://goo.gl/QyT9Gn
