Hi Paladino!

Thanks for this post. It seems to be pretty easy. One thing I am still unsure about is what to do with the backupped data base?
Do I need to overwrite the new data base entries with my back upped copy or will I be working with the newly installed files?

Ideally I would like to check out first whether the update works smoothly and keep my live site running.
Any suggestions how I can do this?

Many thanks in advance,
Justus

Try to save all your files in a ZIP FILE.....From the last day of your good version
After that make copies of these files
IMG
THEMES
MAILS
MODULES
SETTINGS.INC.PHP/ IN THE FOLDER CONFIGconfig

Thanks guys!
I tried to upgrade and everythin is looking fine except the shopping cart overview and the one page checkout. The shopping cart doesnt list any products I put in the cart and I cannot even get to the checkout.

I assume this is due to the numerous changes I made to the code for my custom theme. Anyway, I'll go back to 1.3.2.3 and do the upgrade later when I have ample time.

Thanks for your help!

Yes, definitely make sure you save your database before you upgrade. You can also do this via the back office > Tools > DB backup.
If you don't have a backup you won't be able to restore your initial shop.
