Any advances or solutions? same problem here, thanks in advance.

I am having the same issues and had a sleepless night.

Which version are you upgrading from?

I can share that I’ve managed to install a fresh version and it worked, when I replaced the database from version 2.0.5, I got the same error message.

Although, even when I did the same with a fresh install of version 2.0.15 I kept getting the same error as above.

Any solutions out?

DTL, You can never just replace a database into a different cart version because there will always be changes in the structure between them.

If you are having problems replacing a database into an install of the same version then post the exact errors you are getting so we can help.

This is definitely a database issue where there are columns in CS-Cart 2.1 that are missing in earlier versions. Here’s an idea.

  • Install the old version somewhere.
  • Add the backup database.
  • Export everything you can: users, orders, products, etc.
  • Import all the exports into the new build.

    That should get you 75% there.
