Hi

I was wondering whether you’re going to make available a 1.1.6-1.1.7.diff file to upgrade 1.1.6 to 1.1.7

I used the 1.1.5-1.1.6.diff file for my last upgrade and it was a lot easier than unpacking and copy the whole install

Thanks

Here’s how you do it:

Download magento-1.1.6 and magento-1.1.7 if you still don’t have them.

Run WinMerge ( http://sourceforge.net/projects/winmerge/ )
Compare the folders, go to Tools > Generate Patch, choose Style: Unified.

That’s it!

GREAT!

That is so much easier that doing the whole installation process all over again.
I don’t know if its possible, but what about making it possible to upgrade through Magento Connect?

Of course you can upgrade via Magento Connect in your admin panel. It is quick and easy (for most people).

I’ve found the solution. Install magento-core/Mage_All_Latest in magento connect.

I had issues upgrading with magento connect, and had to do a fresh install.  If you want to see the differences between the two,and have a copy of your 1.1.6 install. you can use a program called meld. http://meld.sourceforge.net/

How does one go about doing a magento upgrade using the diff file?  What about changes to the DB?

Sorry, but I have never used this method before.
