    Thumbs up Magento upgrade from 1.5 to 1.9

    My website is developed in magento version 1.5 that is released in 2010. It is long time to upgrade magento 1.5 to the magento last version.

Upgrading through the browser has a number of downsides, most notably that the browser can timeout or anything from the webserver you're talking to and the php backend. When that happens you have no clue what went wrong or is going to go wrong.

    You can update your Magento 1.x version by following these steps:

    1. Magento Compilation from System > Tools > Compilation > Disable

    2. Magento Cache from System > Cache Management > Select All > Action: Disable > Submit

    3. Remove all files and folders from your previous Magento directory (make sure to keep your backup in a safe place) and place all files and folders from Magento v1.9.x package.

    4. Open your favorite web browser, go to your link. You will be asked to install fresh Magento v1.9.x store but don’t worry, keep going and when you will reach to the Configuration page. Fill it up with the same information you used for your previous Magento store which includes SQL DB Server Hostname, SQL DB Name, SQL Server Username, SQL Server Password, Base URL and Admin Path.

    5. Once you finish the installation, do not visit frontend or backend page. From your previous Magento files and folders backup, copy and merge following files and folders into your new Magento v1.9.x store directory:

    - Community Folder: ROOT > app > code > community

    - Local Folder: ROOT > app > code > local

    - Media Folder in Root Directory: ROOT > media

    - Your Theme Folder: ROOT > app > design > frontend > default (package name) > “your_theme” (If you are using “default” package for your theme then just copy theme folder otherwise you need to copy the whole package which includes your theme folder)

    - Skin Folder in Root Directory: ROOT > skin

    - Module’s Custom XML Files: ROOT > app > etc > modules > “your_custom_XML_files”

    - Admin Theme Folder: ROOT > app > design > adminhtml > default

    - Custom JS Folder: ROOT > app > js

    - Now finally delete everything from ROOT > var > cache and from ROOT > var > sessions to clear all sessions and cache.
