    Default upgrading from 1.5.4 to 1.5.6c - upgrade/installation in root vs /store

    I am upgrading from 1.5.4 to 1.5.6c. If you have an install in your root directory as opposed to /store/ is it possible to install the new version in a directory such as /upgrade/ for testing purposes and then when all is good have the tested upgrade moved to the root?

    Yes it is. Also it is possible to golive in a subfolder, and create .htaccess statements redirecting visitors to the subfolder.

    Depending on your host, you may also relocate the directory/path to which the domain name is pointed so it doesn't matter what sub-directory name exists on your server, your customers always see your domain name.

    Note that (improper) movement of a site to/from a Web side folder has the potential to affect links identified to an existing store.

    Movement of a site is made even easier if all links within the code/store are relative to the store and not hard-coded to require adjustment of sub-folders and the like. With the files and data being relative, the site can be called anything and stored in any sub-directory and the site can be moved/placed anywhere.
