I made the grave error of trying to upgrade my current installation (1.1.8) without doing a test run in a test environment. The upgrade failed and now has left me with a very unstable installation on my live store that will die with any system modifications. The error message I get, which I unfortunately don’t have now, indicate that is caused by an upgrade file executing. I’ve had to rebuild my store several times.
Following these instructions I tried to recreate my environment in a test environment to try and fix this.
On a test site I installed a fresh installation (1.1.7) with a database backup, reconfigured, and got the store running. This installation is now resistant to upgrading. Running upgrade from SSH produces the following error.
magento-core/Mage_All_Latest requires PHP (version >= 5.2.0, version <= 6.0.0, excluded versions: 6.0.0), installed version is 4.4.9
I know for a fact I’m running PHP higher then 5.2.0 so I’m not sure what to make this error. Moving on.
I decided to try a different angle. From MagentoConnect I get this error.
Error: Please check for sufficient write file permissions
Great. I’ve checked these again and again and they should be correct. So now I’m really stuck. Maybe this is because I unpackaged the tar but did not run the installation process.
I need to figure out how to get my live installation fixed. Given my situation with a broken live installation, I’m wondering if anyone has any ideas of getting this going again.
Cheer and TIA
