Hello, I speak better english than german, but will be also happy if somebody can react in german.
After spending more than 1 week all evenings and nights with oxid eshop, reading manuals, following procedures etc. I am still getting problems and seriously stucked with my eshop.
So far I was 7+ years using 4.5.0 installed by myself without any problem. The eshop is still working 100% although very old.
With new year coming I decided to update my wamp server for latest version, that means also new versions of apache, php, mysql/mariadb.
Among other virtualhosts running on old server it showed the only very big problem is to migrate the perfectly working 4.5.0 under new environment. Why there cant be simple button in oxid administration to do all the update stuff itself completely or with some easy manual if my input is needed.
During last days I tried many scenarios - backup entire db and import into new shop, backup and import only some essential tables with articles, users, categories etc, tried to migrate old 4.5.0 into different machine (lost products thumbnails unfortunately although copied all files and db) and there to apply updates without success…
Simply nothing works, everything has many errors, everything consumes plenty of time and it looks I had very bad idea trying to upgrade my machine and update shop to latest modern version. Why is this so big trouble and so much complicated?
Anyway, I am out of ideas now and do not know how to continue, therefore came here to kindly disturb you after almost 50 hours spent with oxid in last week for nothing.
Can someone help me with best steps to 100% migrate my old 4.5.0 oxid CE to newest version? I am using basic template so nothing special.
When I tried update from this page: https://download.oxid-esales.com/community/iframe
I end with errors during the first from many updates on the way to latest version.
That means UPDATE_OXID_ESHOP_CE_V.4.5.0_34568_TO_V.4.6.8_88988.zip ended with no luck and not even talking about many other updates needed for my shop to become latest version.
Additionally I assume even if the updatepp would work I will soon have problems with old versions of mysql and php… Correct?
Based on all above, please how to proceed correctly? And is it worth to spend plenty of time with so many update packages producing plenty errors and face other possible errors while updating mysql and php during this long journey?
Isnt there simple solution for my plan?
Or should I rather migrate from oxid to any better shop where updating is much easier during automated process inside admin background?
Thank you for your replies and recommendations. It is a pitty oxid is so complicated and zero automated.
