Procella Posted September 22, 2008 Share Posted September 22, 2008 I have recentley had a visit from middleeast hackers. My ISP allowed me to take a backup of my database, and then we agreed to reset my site, meaning everything was deleted and reset (PLESK, if that means anything to anyone). I then installed the OsCommerce that comes with Plesk, and that i have been using for a long time, with good succes. I imported my DB, uploaded my language, shipping and payment modules, and everything is fine. In Application_top the version is listed as "$Id: application_top.php,v 1.280 2003/07/12 09:38:07 hpdl Exp $", so i guess its rather old. I would like to upgrade to the latest release RC2. However it seems like its a huge task to upgrade since all upgrade guides says you have to manually upgrade through every versions. Can this be true? There must be a way to make a clean installation in RC2, and then import the data fromthe old DB? Its not like i have the world largest DB, but the 185 customers i have would be nice to have in the "new" shop too. The products canbe uploaded with easypopulate, so thats not an issue either. If i merge the customers in the old-version sql-file, to a new-RC2 sql.file (with notepad or other editor), will that allow my customers to login? Or is there some sort of "filter", that wont allow import of customers from one version to another, without going the long way through all the upgrades of the DB (cant even find all the upgrades, except the ones that comes with RC2) all php-files are standard by now, i havent applied any contributions yet, so it should only be the DB that needs some work doen to it??
