Default Be Careful and Backup when upgrading to 5.3.1.4

Guys , make a backup of both your data base and complete cart files. I got many X Carts going. I thought I was done upgrading and installing - hoping to focus on marketing but ....

Going from 5.2.7 to 5.2.9 - 100% Success
Going from 5.2.9 to 5.3.1.4 - 0% success

Going to a clean install after crashing 4 carts and counting - 80% success on first try.


Main reason for 5.29 upgrade failures is that there is no option to just upgrading the main 5.3.1.4 core module by itself - its seems all 17 modules need to be upgraded at once -no advanced option - not good.

But after backing up after every upgrade level to 5.29 - that last attempt at going from 5.2.9 to 5.3.1.4, I ended up with a different upgrade screen just offering me the Core 5.3.1.4 module and nothing else - success. The remaining 16 modules then appeared up with the advanced mode option back up so I could upgrade individual modules.

Just a heads up.

5.3 brought some serious changes. If you have a successful site, you should absolutely make a copy of your store and run the upgrade there. Actually I think that goes for all upgrades, but for this one it is a must!

Thanks tonerguy,

I am planning to make this jump in the next week or so and will be careful. Once of the reasons we moved this store to 5 was for the modular customizations and easier upgrades. I have found it to be better than 4 in that regard, but it was brought it's own set of frustrations along with it.
