I got a problem with my serveur and I had to re-install everything.
I thought it would be better to install the last version of magento 1.1.8 and link it to my database as I have all my product and order in it.
The problem is I can’t edit my product anymore and there is some missing function. is there any possibility to update the database fields without losing all the information?
Well I could solve the problem jsut by connecting manager connect to Channel: connect.magentocommerce.com/core and updating the version.
but it created another problem:
My categories disappeared from the admin panel; and the menu is not accessible anymore (of course it can’t find the categories).
I can’t create new categories and actually the old categories still exist when you access it from the front end www.mywebsite.com/products
