I have the same question. I red the same topic and remplacing core-> mage files, but notting happened. I dont now, but the files has been changing and I download the version 3 minutes after the release of the new version. In the topic of the post they said that we have to download again.
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 ...
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.
i dont know what i did wrong, i reemplace all the items and nothing works. Even my site was erased and a message of “invalid PHP version” appear. I dont know what i did. I have the MYSQL backup but i dont know how I restore my sistem.
I’m currently running the magento-0.6.12840 version and I have added already some products and made my own template.
But I’m sure what the best way is to upgrade to the new version. Offcourse I need to backup my template first.
Should I upload the new version and run the install again? Or just upload the new version and the database upgrades automatically.
I would like to keep my products and all the system configurations.
