Upgrade to Magento via SSH

For the purpose of this tutorial, we will assume you have access to SSH on your hosting account. You should always create a backup of your entire website/database before proceeding with an upgrade and never perform these steps on a live store. Please be sure to obtain updated files from the authors of any Magento extensions you have installed on your website.
