    Default upgrade question

    I have a question about the upgrade process. I hope you don't think it's a silly question, but I would just like a definite answer from someone who is qualified to answer.

    Whether the upgrade is from 1.3.8a to 1.3.9g or 1.3.9? to 1.3.9g

    If all of the upgrade files are uploaded, overwriting the old files, but the template over ride files have not been compared, merged and upgraded too, is the cart still considered to be upgraded?

    I would think it's not a complete upgrade.

    Simple answer? No. You need to upgrade any override files that may have been changed so they contain the bug fixes and security upgrades too. That involves comparing the overrides to the updates core files.
    Please do not PM for support issues: a private solution doesn't benefit the community.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.

    Addendum:
    • Collect a list of changed files from the change log's
    • Cross check your overidden files against that list
    • You only need to check your override files that have changed
