There is a module in Prestashop that allows you to upgrade your Prestashop to a later version, this is great if you currently run an older version e.g. 126.96.36.199 and want to upgrade to a newer version. The newer versions of Prestashop tends to be a bit faster and offer a more optimized experience. If you are looking to go from 1.6 to 1.7 you need to install a new shop from scratch,
an upgrade is in that case no longer supported. Contact us at Sello support and we will help you. However you can still upgrade from an earlier version of either 1.6 or 1.7 to a newer one, just not from 1.6 to 1.7.
To upgrade, do the following:
- Log into your Prestashop admin page.
- Go to: Modules–> Modules
- Search for the module called “1-Click Upgrade”
- Install the module if it’s not already installed and click: “Configure”
- Follow the instructions to upgrade to a newer version.
After you upgrade you will need to contact us at Sello support as we need to make some server changes in order for your Prestashop to run on the correct image for the version of Prestashop you are now running.
