How can I update the old version of Magento ver. 2.4.4 to a new version Magento Commerce is 2.3.3 if my website Prime Kilt already exists on this platform, It's the first time for me, so I need help performing these steps for preventing all types of bugs that don't affect my website.

Re: Upgrations from 2.3.3 to 2.4.4

Upgrade your Adobe Commerce or Magento Open Source application from the command line.


  • After reviewing system requirements, you must complete the following prerequisites before upgrading your system:
    • Update all software
    • Verify that a supported search engine is installed
    • Convert database table format
    • Set the open files limit
    • Verify that cron jobs are running
    • Verify file system permissions
    • Set the pub/ directory root
    • Install the Composer update plugin
  • Switch to maintenance mode to prevent access to your store during the upgrade process.

bin/magento maintenance:enable

  • To prevent data corruption, disable all cron jobs.

Adobe Commerce on cloud infrastructure:

            ./vendor/bin/ece-tools cron:disable


Magento Open Source:

bin/magento cron:remove


  • Start all message queue consumers manually to ensure all messages are consumed.

            bin/magento cron:run --group=consumers


  • Create a backup of the composer.json file.

             cp composer.json composer.json.bak


  • Add or remove specific packages based on your needs.

           composer remove magento/product-community-edition --no-update

          You can also upgrade sample data.

           composer require <sample data module-1>:<version> ... <sample data module-n>:<version> --no-update


  • Upgrade your instance using the following composer require-commerce command syntax:

  composer require-commerce magento/<product> <version> --no-update [--interactive-root-conflicts] [--force-root-updates] [--help]

  • Update the dependencies.

            composer update


  • Clear the var/ and generated/ subdirectories:

            rm -rf var/cache/*

            rm -rf var/page_cache/*

            rm -rf generated/code/*


  • Update the database schema and data.

            bin/magento setup:upgrade


  • Disable maintenance mode.

bin/magento maintenance:disable


  • Restart Varnish.

        If you use Varnish for page caching, restart it: service varnish restart.


  • Open your storefront URL in a web browser to check whether the upgrade was successful. If your upgrade were unsuccessful, your storefront would not load properly.


If the application fails with a We're sorry, an error has occurred while generating this email.


  • Reset file system ownership and permissions as a user with root privileges.
  • Clear the following directories:
    • var/cache/
    • var/page_cache/
    • generated/code/
  • Check your storefront in your web browser again.
