Conference Room Additions!

WebCitz is pretty excited about its recently upgraded conference room. There will be more added into the conference room in the near future. Our team moved into a larger space back in May 2016 and are finally working on completing out some of the furniture additions as time permits. There just isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done. More pictures to come!

Upgrade to Magento via SSH

This Magento upgrade tutorial will help guide you through the process of updating / upgrading your Magento installation from 1.4+ to which was released on Nov 14, 2016. 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.

NOTE: This update includes SUPEE-5344, SUPEE-5994, SUPEE-6237, SUPEE-6285, SUPEE-6482, SUPEE-6788, SUPEE-7616, SUPEE-7405, SUPEE-7405 v1.1, SUPEE-8788. The main difference between 1.9.3 and is that a few bug fixes were put in place with the recent addition of the SUPEE-8788 patch applied to version 1.9.3.

  1. Change to your Magento installation directory:
    (swap “username” below for your account’s username, or change the entire path to match your absolute URL)

    cd /home/username/public_html
  2. Download Magento from https://www.magentocommerce.com/download
    You can select tar.gz or zip for an archive format.
  3. Upload the archive to the base folder of your Magento installation
  4. Extract the archive:
    tar -zxvf magento-
    unzip magento-
  5. Change to the directory created during extraction:
    cd magento
  6. Turn off file replacement prompts:
    unalias cp
  7. Copy the Magento files over your existing files:
    cp -rf * ../
  8. Change back to your Magento installation directory:
    cd ..
  9. Remove the empty folder
    rm -rf magento
  10. Optional: CHMOD all files to 644:
    find -type f -name ‘*.*’ -exec chmod 644 {} \;
    Optional: CHMOD all folders to 755:
    find -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
    Optional: CHOWN all files/folders:
