Magento 2.2 to Magento 2.4.2 - Effort estimate?

Magento 2.2 to Magento 2.4.2 - Effort estimate?

Hi,

 

I have a client who needs to upgrade from Magento 2.2 to Magento 2.4.2.   Initial estimates from the Magento partner managing the site are in the range of 10-12 weeks  (man days).   Can anyone share their experience and how this figure might be realistic?   It seems very high.

 

Thanks and regards

Ian

Hello @ianbradleyc21a 

 

Upgrading from Magento 2.2 to 2.4 sometimes challenging. We usually say major version upgrade.

So there are chances the time they suggested is ok in terms of days.
In terms of estimation, I can't say for sure, how much they are charging.


You can try to reach out to other agencies too to understand the process and estimates.

Upgrade Magento Version from 2.3.X to 2.4.0

Step 1: If you are directly performing the upgrade on your live site then first put your site into maintenance mode by running below command.

1
php bin/magento maintenance:enable

Step 2: If you are performing the upgrade on your local system then you can skip step 1 and start with step 2.
Take a backup of the composer.json

1
cp composer.json composer.json.bak

Step 3: Install the Composer update plugin

3
composer require magento/composer-root-update-plugin=~1.0 --no-update
 
composer update

Step 4: Update composer.json file with latest version. In our case, it is Magento Version 2.4.0. Navigate to your Magento 2 installation root path and run below command

1
composer require magento/product-community-edition=2.4.0 --no-update

Step 5: Run below command

1
composer update

This command will take some time to finish. This command will actually download all the required packages and upgrade your Magento version from 2.3.x to 2.4.0. After this command finish, run below commands

Step 6: Clear cache and regenerate code.

php bin/magento setup:di:compile
  
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

Step 7: Disable maintenance mode

1
php bin/magento maintenance:disable

 

I recommend you to contact this Landofcoder Company for check with them.
