I plan to upgrade a site to version 4.50, its currently running 4.40.
I have read this guide:
is it exactly the same as from 4.30 to 4.40?
Another question, what about the plugins folder, do you empty that folder too?
Ahhhh, so you always upgrade by just copying to a new folder, and then point iis to this new folder?
Thanks a lot for your advice, I will try going that way :-)
I want to include one more thing here, if your images store system is file system then you have to copy/move images folder from prev version.
Also if you have any 3rd party plugin which store files in wwwroot folder then you have to copy/move those too.
I have version 4.40.2 and would like to upgrade to latest. I am using Linux (Ubuntu ) & MySQL and the connection string is
"ConnectionString": "server=localhost;database=mydb;allowuservariables=True;user id=user1;password=password1!",
"SQLCommandTimeout": null }
I installed it from scratch it works fine with the new Db but how could I attach my old mysqldb ?
Also if I copy the images to the same folder would it be fine ?
I am very new to Nopcommerce so please be patient with me
Thank you all
You should be able to change the
Backup your old DB first. (And if it was me, I'd restore that backup, and then point to the restored DB.
Then the restore becomes production, and the old DB is the backup ;)
RE: " copy the images "
Are you storing images in the Files System, or in the DB? (In you admin Media Settings, what is selected for "Pictures are stored into..."?)
