Upgrade or not?

Hi guys,

I have a new magento installation which runs on 1.5.1.0. I’m in doubt if I should upgrade or not. I just bought many extensions and I don’t know if they are compatible with 1.6, but I bought them recently so I think they are. Furthermore, I don’t have experience with upgrading either, perhaps it is better to just stick with magento 1.5 and later when I have more experience that I will upgrade to 1.6. What do you guys think, upgrade right away or first get more familiar with upgrading?

Cheers,

Joey

Hey Joey,

I’d suggest making a fresh installation of Magento 1.6 and then moving all your database from the old 1.5.1.0. More than that, if you make sure your extensions are already compatible with 1.6, it would be perfect for you to make the fresh 1.6.

And to move all your store database to the new installation, you can use this service: http://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/supported-carts/55-magento
