Hey Guys,

I’m trying to upgrade a clients site from 1.4.2 to 1.6, but every tutorial i follow doesn’t seem to work.. I followed a tutorial on turnkey (http://turnkeye.com/blog/magento-upgrade-from-1-4-version-to-magento-1-5-magento-1-6/), which a lot of people said worked. However, it didn’t work for me. When it gets to the part:

./mage sync
No upgrades are available?

I’ve seen this problem posted on this forum back in 2009, but no-one replied to him/her.

I’ve also tried to just install a fresh copy of 1.6 magento, with a 1.4.2 database, then hope that i could upgrade the database from with magento or something, but that didn’t work.

Any ideas?

You can make a brand new installation of Magento 1.6 and then move all the products, customers, orders, design, seo and stuff there. This may sound more complex, but it’s actually much easier and resourceless.

To move all the data to the new installation, you can check out Magento Connect http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect and see what you’ll find there. Here’s for example a web service for moving all your store data to Magento: http://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/supported-carts/55-magento. For all the other stuff, Magento Connect should work.

That’s about it. Should work in each case. At least, it’s safer, I believe.
