If you decided to update Magento ecommerce store or use the most updated version – this article is written for you! But, before you will pay your money for an updating - it's worth trying to update your website yourself.
If you will compare the procedure to other engines - it’s complicated procedure, but you can figure it out as it is manageable and cognitive procedure.
Another bonus – possibility to save a significant amount of money, and at the same time - get acquainted with the system itself, which will be very useful in future.
Step by step procedure:
1) Download the latest Magento’s version, according your needs.
2) Upload files to the server in a separate folder or sub-domain. In fact, create a new temporary site at new-magento.site.com or site.com/new-magento.
3) Copy from the published site all the files (that are not related to the kernel of the system) files of modules, themes, pictures, etc. Fill in the files with new facilities.
4) Create a new database and import the database from a published site. After that - connect the database to a new site.
