Upgrading Minor Releases

Upgrading Minor Releases

As you already know that a minor release never contains breaking changes. You can upgrade without worries. Please read the changelog for detail about the changes, this will help you to decide if you really need to upgrade or not.

 

HELP! If you are not sure which version of zCart is running currently on your marketplace, you can find it here.

 

To upgrade minor releases please follow these steps:

Step 1: Download the files from CodeCanyon and extract on your local computer.

Step 2: Set your marketplace in maintenance mode, so that visitor doesn’t get any errors or see sensitive system information.

Step 3: Rename the app directory to app-old on your server, so that you can get back to the old version if having issues with the new one.

Step 4: Upload the app directory from the newly downloaded zCart script.

Step 5: Check the changes from the admin dashboard if the script works as it should.

HELP! If you got any issues please contact zCart support team with detail explanations and screenshots of the issues. The support team can help you fast it you provide every detail of the problem.

 

Backend Fixes:

If the newly released version doesn’t contain any admin/merchant dashboard fixes/changes, then skip this step

Step 6: Rename the resources/views directory to views-old on your server, so that you can get back to the old version if having issues while upgrading.

 

Front-end fixes:

If the newly released version doesn’t contain any front-end fixes/changes, then skip this step

Step 7: Rename the public/themes directory to themes-old on your server, so that you can get back to the old version if having issues while upgrading.

 

Step 6: Now turn off the maintenance mode and you’re done.
