How To Upgrade V4 To Latest Release?

Are there any resources for upgrading version 4.x to current releases?

[url=“CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation”]CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation → contains no v4 information except for importing from pre v4.

All I can find is the 4.1.1. announcement in the forum - [size=3]“[color=#282828][font=arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif]4.0.x stores can be upgraded to 4.1.1 via the Upgrade Center in the CS-Cart admin panel. The upgrades should be available to all CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor storeowners within several days.

Unless you're very confident with database imports/exports and quite a few other things it's best to wait for the upgrade to appear in your admin panel. It will then walk you through the process.

Ideally you should have a development/test store and perform the whole process there first before rolling out to a live server. I would never upgrade any live server without testing it first.

Thanks NairdaCart. Odd thing, this “upgrading” with CS-Cart.

Ideally… I wouldn’t upgrade without instructions :shock:

Dev server - yes, but would require a second license?

Themes are my primary concern, then basic upgrade steps - do I have to manually delete /var/cache or just clear cache after disabling caching, do I shut the storefront, should I switch to default theme, db backup, file perms, cleanup and… Themes what happens to customized themes! I downloaded 4.1.1 full and no upgrade instructions or SQL upgrade file. So it looks like the Automatic method, with a blindfold, if it ever arrives… :-(

I am having the same issue with my 4.0.1 version. The Upgrade Center only shows the option to upgrade to 4.0.2. I wonder if I can upgrade straight to 4.1.2 without going through the intermediate versions.

Any information would be appreciated.

I don't think the other versions to upgrade will show until you upgrade to 4.02 than 4.03 and so on. It would be nice to be able to bypass.

To bypass you would have to do a clean install and import. Anyone else?

gdao & zeero6 - that's not the issue I've posted about here but it is related!!

How do you upgrade 4.x?! There are no instructions in the full download, none in the admin, none in the download/support area, and none in the upgrade KB's [url=“CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation”]CS-Cart Documentation — CS-Cart 4.15.x documentation[font=arial, verdana, tahoma, sans-serif] [/font][/color]

Looks like they've added a 4.1.x Update doc this week, excellent!
