I've built a Magento site around 1.8 alpha release. Now 126.96.36.199 final is out, and I wish to upgrade my installation.
What would be the easiest path of accomplishing this?
Please note that my site is not yet in production.
Upgrade should take less than one minute
You're good to go with the following shell steps:
Before proceeding with this part of Magento upgrade, it is important to see to what version Magento upgrade scripts will upgrade your store. Enter this command to check this:
After that you can upgrade your Magento to Magento 188.8.131.52 stable using this command:
./mage upgrade-all --force
If "./mage upgrade-all --force" will not work, you can try to execute this command:
./mage install http://connect20.magentocommerce.com/community Mage_All_Latest --force
You will see upgraded packages on your screen. Now the upgrade is complete and you can execute database upgrade visiting your Magento store in your browser, this process will take several minutes, so be patient. If everything was upgraded correctly, you will see upgraded store in your browser. Before database upgrade it is recommended to increase time and memory limits of your PHP engine.
