How to tell what Snapshot version I have?


Recommended Posts



I have an older snapshot - back to mid 2002 I think, anyway how do I tell what snapshot version I have as each of the php files have different dates depending on when they were last updated.


Basically I want to move to the MS2 and I know there has been DB changes etc and many other changes and I want to move as much data from the existing shop to the new MS2 version but want to make sure I do this correctly, even if I have to export the table data and enter them manually.


Once I know what snapshot I have I'll then ask for help as to the best way to move to MS2.


Many Thanks

about 20 lines from the top of /includes/application_top.php you will find a line similar to this:


// define the project version

define('PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 2.2-MS2');

Thanks but that only tells me its a CVS


PROJECT_VERSION', 'osCommerce 2.2-CVS


Is there anyway to tell the date or the snapshot?


The application_top.php file has this at the top


$Id: application_top.php,v 1.247 2002/08/13 18:49:07 dgw_ Exp $


Is that the date of the snapshot?


If so how can I find out the best way to transfer the data (even manually) from that version to the MS2 version?

you can upgrade your database..




You must use the upgrade script included in the /extras directory in the new MS2 version to upgrade your database..


I made a successful upgrade to 2.2MS2 from 2.2-CVS
