Hello everyone, I'm sorry to ask a very noob question. But I'm interested in upgrading my php version. 6.00.110 to v7. How would be the easiest process to go about doing so? Should I first upgrade to version. 6.01.15 and then do an upgrade to v7 or is there a way to fresh install a v7 and then just backup my database.
I had already tried doing a fresh install and rstoring the database but when I restored the back up I got several errors. Any help will greatly be appreciated, and advice. As for the website in question. http://www.animeexplosion.net
The most important thing to do first is perform the upgrade. There is one upgrade.php that needs to be uploaded to your administration folder. Take a look at the upgrade files and you will find the correct one for your version.
Do not place any of the new files into the root folder until after you have upgraded.
The upgrade will upgrade the database. You cannot use your old database because it will not have the correct tables.
Once your database is upgraded to version 7, then go ahead and upload all of the version 7 files.
Important. First keep a backup of your version 6 database.
Once the database is upgraded to version 7, keep a copy of that also for the time being.
PS... You may need to upgrade to version 6.01 first before going to version 7.00.1
