Re: bring 1.2.6 database into new 1.3.8 test site??
My team is tackling a similar feat by rebuilding an old 1.2.7 site to the latest 1.3.9 version. (Finally convinced a customer to take advantage of upgrades!)
We have a complete dump of all data from the previous site database and we are building the 'upgraded' version on a new server with the new database, and manually porting over template customizations.
Someone mentioned to me that the database format of 1.3.9 with mysql5 is different than the 1.2.7 site with mysql4 and therefore we cannot port over the database, and will have to enter products manually. Is this true?
This website has several products and customer/order history that I would like the preserve. The products are basic standard shippable items, and they do have some attributes. We also have UPSXML installed.
Is there something else I should know besides the standard upgrade docs?
