Upgrading

Upgrading osCmax is fairly easy process. If you have a heavily modified store, I recommend you manually compare and merge in the changes to your shop to make sure none of your changes are overwritten.

Follow these steps for the automated upgrade process:

  1. Make a backup of both your current files and database as a precaution.
  2. Put your site in Down For Maintenance Mode (you may need to add your IP to the allowed admin IPs there)
  3. Upload the new files from the Changes-Only zip file overwriting the existing files.
  4. Login to your admin panel and go to the Administrator >> Upgrade System section.
  5. On the upgrade system page, you should see text asking if you want to upgrade. Click the upgrade button.
  6. Refresh the page in your browser. It should tell you that you are now running the latest version.That is it.
