Hi,

I have upgraded the magento site from 1.4.1 to 1.4.2.But I am getting several issues when upgrade from 1.4.2 to 1.7

I followed this

http://turnkeye.com/blog/magento-upgrade-guide/

Once all upgrades are done I cannot see the homepage it showing me lots of arrays printed in the web.
Second time it was giving me Fobidden error.

I need to know if we can actually upgrade this version or is there any other way to do this?

Sometimes I can see this error comes in SSH panel

PHP Notice:  Array to string conversion in /var/www/vhosts/PATH/downloader/lib/Mage/Connect/Command/Install.php on line 356

Any Ideas
Thanks

hi
if you enter all commands correctly and read output and error logs,
you will be able to upgrade magento.
the most time consuming operation is database upgrade.

i can confirm that upgrading magento 1.3 > 1.7 is simple as drink a beer in a summer day.

cheers

Hey,

Did a quick read over the upgrade steps, not bad, however I have found there were some pretty big table changes around 1.6, which made my upgrade fall over a few times. So I took a different track.

I took a clean copy of magento and performed the upgrade against the database. This way I could get the db upgraded, and see how the default template works.

Upgrade from 1.4.2 to 1.7 should not be a problem. As others have pointed out, the most risky part is the database upgrade. To mitigate the chance of errors through the upgrade, you should limit site access to only your IP address during the upgrade and set the server timeout values high enough to allow the data upgrade script to complete. Also, never upgrade on a “live” store. Preferably, create a staging environment and apply the upgrade and sort out any issues first.
