Guest Posted June 30, 2008 Share Posted June 30, 2008 OK I managed to get my site back up after I found out my host upgraded to PHP5, Thanks! to those that gave me help and info here. Just a quick recap... My site has been running fine pretty much for almost 5 years now with out much trouble. But yesterday I got an email complaining that the shipping cost where too high. When I went to login admin is when I found that I had problems because my host upgraded to Php5. Managed to get it back up and running, but now I am thinking I need to sit down and get it updated. osCommerce version 2.2-MS2 - with a couple very minor mods PHP 5.1.4 MySQL 4.1.12 So now the questions: Should I really update to RC2a? The main area I think I need to address is the shipping methods and probably Paypal, there are a lot newer versions than what I have now as I am still using the ones that came with MS2. I downloaded rc2a and went over the upgrade.html and that tells me to do rc1 first before doing rc2a. Seems to me there is a lot of files that need to be patched / modified. It also mentions that there is some sql fixes but I don't notice or understand how to take care of them... ( a little more research and guess I will pretty soon though ;). So I am woundering ... why can I not just copy the already pached files (listed in the upgrade.html) from the download of RC2a to the proper directorys and be done and over with? Instead of spending a bunch of time editing a bunch of files and taking the chance of a bad paste or two. But then also how and what do I need to correct with the SQL database for the changes in the new files and the fact that my host is still using MySQL 4 ? And then will I still have to run the sql reconfigure for the shipping method being that I rc2a would have v3 or above? But then would it just be simpler to install rc2a and start from scratch? Please excuse my ignorace as I am just trying to figure the best way of getting my site up to speed and at the same time save a bit of time.
