it appears that the same error that plagued the 1.1.7 upgrade exist on the 1.1.8 upgrade.
I am attempting to upgrade 1.1.6 to 1.1.8 using the magento downloader program.
I see the 1.1.8 modules available (was still trying to get 1.1.7 working) and attempted to perform an upgrade.
I cleared var/cache var/session and checked ‘clear all sessions after successful install or upgrade’ and once again, all modules are installed correctly, per the output box.
However, when I navigate back into the dashboard, I’m stuck with 1.1.6.
I tried it on another development site and there are no problems whatsoever. The only difference between the sites are the themes being used, the products themselves, and one is production, one is development. Hosted on the same server, even.
Is this a file permissions error, perhaps? This is the only thing I can think of, as I’m scratching my head here.
If so, what directories must I have set at 777?
Thanks for the input. I’d *love* to get the sitemap and google base up and running, it is critical to my business.
