How do I upgrade from CubeCart v6 to latest v6?
Posted by Al Brookbanks on 29 December 2014 09:27 AM

Why not get one of our developers to upgrade it for you? This service is included in our "Managed Technical Support" plan. Find out more at https://www.cubecart.com/technical-support 

Instructions

  1. Take a FULL backup of your existing files and database and check that  it is complete. This is critical in case the upgrade process fails or there is an error. 

  2. Download the latest CubeCart v6 archive, extract it and upload the  files and folders over your existing files  replacing all existing ones. 

    IMPORTANT: If your admin folder or admin.php file has been renamed please reflect these changes in the extracted package prior to uploading. These must correspond to the values specified in the includes/global.inc.php file. 

  3. Once that has completed in full please browse to the setup/ folder of your store.
     
    Examples: 
    http://www.example.com/setup/ 
    http://store.example.com/setup/ 
    http://www.example.com/shop/setup/ 

    Note: FTP can time out so please check the FTP log if available to make sure it completed successfully.

  4. If all files have uploaded successfully the setup page should load. Please select  "Upgrade CubeCart" and follow the on screen instructions.

  5. Once complete please delete the setup/ folder to keep your store secure.
