How can I update a Magento installation? I would like to update to the latest version, 0.6.13110.

I’ve read the post Update Magento To A Newer Version Without Wiping Out The Database? , but it isn’t clear to me how to update it.

I’ve seen a post a little while ago that described how to update a Magento installation, but I can’t find the post anymore. I also couldn’t find this in the documentation or the wiki.

Hey Guys,

The easy way is basically backing-up the original folder on your server and uploading - unzipping and re-installing it again from the new zip file - at the end when your dbase and your store is ready to go - just overwrite the original Media and Skin folders with your old ones.. you might have to also look back at your /var/www/magento/app/code/core/Mage/Page/Block/Html/Header.php and make sure the “ ‘Welcome to Magento Demo Store!’ “ is deleted ..
that’s pretty much it .. very easy .. I did it with bothe updates so far and it worked ...

Thanks,

Peter

Database upgrades should happen automatically.

This is achieved using 3 components:
1. db table `core_resource`
2. config path like modules/Mage_Core/version
3. files like Mage/Core/sql/core_setup/mysql4-upgrade-0.6.0-0.6.2.php

Every time configuration cache is created it is validating version of db structure for each module against value in configuration. If it differs it runs necessary ugprade files.

Hope this answers your question.

When updating Magento, until the full version is released, which files should I backup to make sure I don’t lose my design modifications? All I plan on updating between now and the full release are the design templates and entering products. I just want to make and not lose my progress/modifications with each update.

My site works again. Just backup your folder media and Skin. Erase and Install again. Your configuration is saved, but you have to put again the media folder and your skin. Try the new version.
