    Default How to upgrade to 2.5

    How can I upgrade from v2.0.25 to v2.5? I guess that will sound a silly question to most readers but I have searched the forum and did not find a thread to that.

    At this moment in time, there is no upgrade package available.
    With some database knowledge and a site that isn't heavily customised, with templates done properly, it is fairly straightforward. A couple of days work, with those caveats.
    2.5 is a Release Candidate, not a regular version, yet, unlike 2.0.25

    The upgrade scripts will be ready and included when 2.5 final has been released.

    Michael,

    I am sorry to bump up an old thread, My sole purpose of registering here was to get some help on the same issue. I am currently on v2.0.25 and badly want to uprgade my website to 2.5 RC1. Your upgrade manuals say doing it through Mysql is possible. I am no mysql expert. Could you provide me the commands to use upon to make this upgrade possible?
    You may ask why not wait until the stable is released, please forgive me. I desperately trying to go further with the new versions on my website. Could not find the beta downloads on your website as well to go from there too.

    I have been using OSCMAX since the release of 2.0.2 version. Its a great tool.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    thanks

    Albert

    Given the additional information supplied and apparent level of knowledge, I advise you not to upgrade at this point in time. You will introduce more issues than you will resolve! Either 'employ' someone to take you up to the latest SVN of 2.5 (with some bugs remaining) or have patience. Alternatively, ignore my advice at your peril.

    Thanks EJ,

    I will wait until the final release. But any ETA on the final release?

    I concur with Ridex. a RC is better than a BETA. But it is not "prime time". Making the move from RC1 to RC2 when it comes out will be fairly straight forward. Making the move from 2.0.X to 2.5 is a much more complex affair (can be almost impossible with a store that has lot's of mods).

    As part of the plan for the final release of 2.5, as was stated, there will be tools that allow for a low-mod store to upgrade effectively. The more mods in the 2.0.X, the harder any upgrade path will be.

    My suggestion mirrors Ridex... wait if you can.

    as for the ETA, the best way to get a feel for how close it is would be to follow the bugtracker. Once most of the bugs have been stomped and tested clean, then RC2 will come out. Remember, before we got to RC1 we went through three beta releases, each had a shorter cycle as the code got cleaner and more ready for prime time. I suspect that the same can be expected as we move to 2.5 final. So, watch the bugtracker and as that issues list gets closer to 0, expect the next RC.
