osCommerce

The e-commerce.

Fresh install but old version

Recommended Posts

I just installed osCommerce and have been playing all weekend. I installed through ipower.com per their suggestion. They installed version MS2. Is that common? I wanted to download STS and noticed that it required an upgrade first to RC1 then again to RC2. Sounds like a fresh installation on my own would be better.

 

I have an outstanding tech support ticket with my host. I should have an answer this afternoon or tomorrow. I don't know if they have a reason for the older version. My store contains no products. I have done some minor configuration and got the CSS sheet just so, but I am guessing that the STS install will make the CSS changes invalid anyway. I am looking for the best and most flexible long term solution.

 

What is the best path? I am assuming that I should upgrade. Should I go through the upgrade steps or simply reinstall?

 

I noticed a similar thread in mid March, but there were no answers.

 

Thanks in advance.

Reinstall, so delete files and empty the database.

Update. I changed hosts (I was leaning that way anyway). My new hosting company installed the latest version AND asked me questions that resulted in a lot of the configuration work being done at installation.
