Now my oscommerce version is osCommerce 2.2-MS2. I do not know if i should Upgrade it to 2.2 MS2 (051113). I want to know:

1. what is the difference between them?

2. If i upgrade it, will it affect the contributions that already have installed on my site?

Many thanks in advance!

Yes, you should upgrade. The upgrade has security patches as well as some other changes. But you will need to manually install the changes since overwriting the files will most likely break your shop.

I know it's been said over and over, but I'm still confused - how do I figure out what version I have? I know that I have 2.2 installed, but what is the difference between that and 2.2 MS2 (051113)?

 

Thanks

Look in includes/application_top.php for the version (it won't indicate the update but will say if it is MS2, which it probably is). The easiest way to tell if you need the update is to try installing it. If the code has already been changed, it is installed.

If i want to upgrade, where can i find such instruction to upgrade it?
There are instructions included in the contribution. To find the contribution, go to the contribution section (see menu above) and search for security update.
