Here is a couple of screenshots of the erros I was getting during the updrade from within Connect Manager.... The whole site stopped working sometime in the middle during the upgrade....
I didn't disable caching before the upgrade ... could that have been the problem ?
If Connectmanager doesn't work for me, can someone point me to a guide of upgrading to 22.214.171.124 another way ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi @fixxi1, have you seen our dev docs for upgrading Magento? You might find them helpful: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/m1x/install/installing_upgrade_details.html
This upgrade article in your link refers to magneto installations with heavy customizations and basically walks you through creating a separate development server where you import your production environment. ( I might add that the article doesn't seem to end with instructions on how to take the upgraded installation back to the production server... )
My scenario is simpler. A clean 1,9.1.1 installation without any customizations . ( only has some product data ).
(not screaming ) SO, DOES MAGENTO SUPPORT IN-PLACE UPGRADE OF SUCH NON-CUSTOMIZED INSTALLATIONS ?
Is the ConnectManger not be used at all for such simple scenarios ? Or is ConnectManager now retired for upgrades even a simple non-customized upgrade ?
Besides ConnectManager is there a way to apply the 1.9.2 upgrade in-place on the production server and can I see a link to such guide please ? ( Considering that the 1.9.2 upgrade is a zip file, i.e it is not a bash/sh script like the updates which do come with installation instructions using the sh/patch command )
If you don't have any customizations it should be pretty simple to upgrade using Magento Connect Manager. You should still follow the steps in the documentation for disable cache, etc before upgrading.
It is highly reccomended not to upgrade on prod but to instead have a staging environment that you can push to prod. Having a staging environment is a pretty standard dev best practice, not one specific to Magento.
The easiest way is to go to the Magento Connect Manager and press the Check for Upgrades Button.
Then you can see updates for all versions.
If you want to Update all packages then take Mage_All_Latest
I think when you are in the same Major release the update should work without any problems.
Or you can manually copy all the latest magento version files and paste it on your magento root folder.
Thanks themagecomp for the feedback.
So by overwriting the files it should be ok to update to 1.9.2 from 126.96.36.199 assuming there are no customizations whatsoever ? I was also told that this way there is no need to manually update the database itself, considering the update may include database changes, and magento *might* perform any necessary database updates by itself later on ??
I have cache and compiler disabled and correct permissions but Magentoconnect is not working for me, throwing the following illogical errors :
See pics screenshots :
I made it work ! here is what I had to do.
In ConnectManger I only needed to update Mage_all_Latest .. do not upgrade all the packages.
In Connect Manager in Settings I had to set it to use the default permissions for new files. Instead it was creating files and folders with 777 / 666 , security risk ?
I had to reduce my php version to php 5.4 from 5.5. On 5.5 I was getting unsupported php version.
I disabled cache before upgrading.
That is all.
I am still struggling to update via connect manager. I am using PHP 5.5. I tried via connect manager. Check upgrade and then select 1.9.2 and commit upgrade. Nothing basically happens. I mean literally no action. So then I tried via SSH. Via SSH I am only able to install 1.9.1 again with the following command. ./mage install http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community Mage_All_Latest --force
