Upgrade procedure

I have v2.12professional and i am thinking to upgrade to 2.14 version.

I already did it the backup of my website wiht filezilla to my local computer.

Now my questions are:

a) With upgrade I lose or not my settings configured in the admin area?

b) If yes how can I safe my settings?

c) Anyone can tell me the correct procedure for a safe upgrade



I backup my skin and usually only have to replace styles.css and some tpl files. Otherwise if you have any third party mods you will probably lose them.

Not if they are done correctly.

For the OP’s original question… No, you should not lose any of your admin settings. And when you reference version numbers, please be sure you are accurate. You listed 2.13 to 2.14 (which is probablly 2.1.3 to 2.1.4) which can easily be confused with 2.0.13 to 2.0.14. To find out your version, use:

YourStore | Search Engine Optimization For eCommerce Brands

and it will display the current version.

After the upgrade completes, you will probably see a line in your upgrade center that reads something like:

“You site had local modifications, click here to see the differences”.

This will bring up a list of “conflicts” the upgrade found. You can review each one in a nice color coded diff format. Play around and you’ll see. The upgrade expects you to resolve the conflicts manually. It installs the latest distributed versions of the files.
