How to Upgrade step by step?

I know it is here on the forum somewhere, but I’m looking for quite a while and could not find a step-by-step guide to upgrade versions.

I’m on 1.5.0.1 and reading the improvements table on 1.5.1.0 I would like to give it a try.

Will my first upgrade and I have no clue how it should be done.

I have special themes, translations, and modules, but as far as I know I never changed any Magento Core files.

I’m in a shared server, so I have limited access to DUMP mysql tables. Even if I do, I realized once in the past that the tables create for magento in one folder (/magento) will not work on another folder (/magBackup), so I have no idea what I need to do in order to do the upgrade in a test environment first.

@carouze
Copy the attachment Mage_All_Latest-1.5.0.1.xml in your folder var/package.
Then logout and login again.
Now you see the selection Mage_All_Latest.
Klick the Check for upgrade button and select the Version 1.5.1.0.
Press Commit Changes and the upgrade will running.

I did have the same luck…
After uploading the file to /var/package what I can see is this from Magento Connect:

Channel: connect.magentocommerce.com/community

Clear all sessions after successfull install or upgrade:
Package Name Installed Available Actions Summary
Commit Changes Installed
Upgrade Available

Auto-scroll console contents

so, no packages available/listed.

if I try to click the Commit button, i got this:
No actions selected

any ideas what could be wrong?

1. You must logout / login
2. Then press Check for upgrade button
3. The Mage_All-Latest is colored yellow
4. Select in this field (action) 1.5.1.0 and press Commit Changes

It’s not difficult wink

VG Stefan

well, then I’m getting more puzzled....
my magento is: Magento versão. 1.5.0.1
how could the Connect be older then the magento it’self?

How can I update manually then?

I had an old 1.4.xx install, that was update to 1.5.0.1 about 2 months ago.
what can I do to update my ConnectManager?

used this solution from thread: http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/5641/

The problem turned out to be that after extracting the zip, the permissions on all my magento files were set to either 775 or 664, but my web host (midphase - shared linux) does not allow permissions to be higher than 755 / 644, or more specifically group and world cannot have write or execute permissions.  (See http://midphasehelp.com/support/questions.php?questionid=297) I would not be surprised if your host is the same.

The solution seems to be to change permissions of index.php to 0644 or 0755.  This worked and the 500 Internal Server Error was gone.

@ehm01,
If you are sure that your upgrade was successful two month ago.
Take a lock in your Admin panel. Which magento version was indidated in the footer.

the one I sent before 1.5.0.1

What I’m doing now, on the BACKUP site, is changing all permissions on files to 644 (my server do not allow 666)
looks like this could be an issue.

I do that using my FPT software, so will take a while…
and tomorrow I will be flying all day, so I can only check back Friday.
I will be working on it till late tonight, but I’m having a lot of hope on this 666-->644 issue.

I followed all the steps but when I update “Mage_All_Latest” not painted yellow.
I’m running Magento 1.5.0.1 and I want to upgrade to 1.5.1.0

Any ideas?

Double check yours permissions (644 and 755 for files and folders respectiv.) I had problems with that. Not that my problems went away, but at least I could update after running a permission setup on my whole magento.
