My hosting denied to give me SSH access so I have to find another way to upgrade my store.Version jump is big,is it good idea to use magento connect for such upgrade ? I dont have custom extensions,only my design is unique.
You can still upgrade using Magento Connect if you don’t have SSH access, just make sure you make a backup first of your files and database! If there’s no backup option in your control panel, ask your host and see if they will create a ZIP or TAR file of your files and a dump of your database so you don’t have to use FTP to download every single file.
