I am trying to update magento ce- to ce-1.8. Following the guide I am suposed to

Archive any custom theme packages in the magento-install-dir/app/design/frontend and magento-install-dir/skin/frontend directories.

Does this include base and default folders? I guess the update will change these files so I would not include them but on the other hand some modules might have added files here.

What would be the best way to go here?


Dpending on you changed something in them, you should backup them, but not recover them.

Better is, if you diff against a to check for modifications, if you find one, you need to handle them, if everything is old, you don't need to backup them.

  • Ok, I get an original and run diff. Thanks! – PiTheNumber Dec 10 '13 at 10:43
