after reading a few threads on upgrading I decided to backup my site. I then used Magento Connect using the “magento-core/Mage_All_Latest-stable” command, I noticed a few files failed but it said it had completed the upgrade. I tried getting back to the site but all I got was a 500 error page, Im in the process of rolling back to my backup to try it again and get the failed file names.
Well it didnt goto plan the backup didnt work either for some reason so it looks like I’ll be starting from fresh with the 1.1.6 installer. Its not that much of a problem as I hadnt added all my products to the site yet anyway, I just hope updating in the future works.
