How to update from 2.2ms1to a current cvs version

Recommended Posts

I successfully installed 2.2ms1 (2/17/03). Now I want to update it to a recent cvs. I'm quite consed about the structure of the file.

 

Questions:

1. Do I need to delete the old catalog, admin files completely. Then upload the CVS file? Should I delete all the tables as well?

 

2. The CVS file has structure like this:

catalog

catalog

 

Admin

Admin

 

For my 2.2ms1, there is only 1 catalog and 1 Admin. I placed the admin folder under catalog folder then use the address:

mywebsite/catalog/admin/configuration.php to configue

 

Now with this CVS, where should I place the admin and how to configure?

 

3. Since I just started, it's ok for me to delete the older version and install the new ones. But after I run the site for a while with all the customer's info and product info, how do I update then? I don't want to start all over again at that time.

 

Thanks so much for yous help.

Can someone help me on this?

 

I'm sure there are numbers of people use CVS and know how to update.

 

The big question is:

Is the CVS file a stand-alone file? Do I need 2.2ms1 as a base and then use CVS as a update?

 

What kind of structure should I use when upload CVS files?

 

Thanks.

The easiest thing to do since you just started, would be to delete your current installation including the database.

 

Then install the latest CVS version and have at it.

 

In regards to updating in the future, that will largely depend upon how many and what contributions and modifications you make to your store.

Hi,

 

I think the best thing to do would be to re-install to a second database with the development version and copy your first database to the second one after emptying the new database in phpmyadmin.

 

If you use the development version you will need to get on the development mailing list listed at oscommerce.com and when there are new commits you can go to cvs and update.

 

I believe I would wait because there is only a couple of more things to be done on the workboard and then 2.2ms2 will be out.

A lot of the files have changed and some pages have been removed so it would be best to wait.

I did not realize that MS2 was so close. Thanks for the information! :)

Thanks so much for your replies.

 

I've deleted the old 2.2ms1 files/folders. Now the structure of cvs file is

catalog

catalog

 

admin

admin

 

Should I uploaded in this way then?

Why there are 2 catalogs and 2 admins?

 

When installed ms1 I placed admin under catalog, with cvs what should I do then?

 

Please shred me some light.

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

That's just the way it is listed in the development version.

 

Just use the second catalog and second admin to upload.

 

Put the second admin in the second catalog to make it like you have it now.
