Hello all -
I am new to Magento but really like the product. We are using it, very successfully, to power our store.
We have 1.1.6 installed but we have a couple of ebooks we want to sell so 1.2 is what we are after. I was going to install that version via Magento Connect manager, which sounds easy as pie in this post: http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/upgrading_magento but that post makes no mention of the dire warning not to upgrade a live site as in this post: http://www.magentocommerce.com/blog/comments/magento-version-120-is-now-available/ .
Downloading Magento via FTP took hours Do I have to now upload that download to a new directory, sending more hours before experimenting with upgrading before I tackle my live site? Or can Magento Connect manager be trusted to do the work? Is upgrading as easy as the first post, or as demanding as the second one?
Thanks for any help on this. I just don’t want to end up destroying all the work I’ve already accomplished on my site.
