Performing your Zen Cart Upgrade

Upgrading - Introduction

Before you make a decision about which upgrade you wish to do (Standard or Database-only), take a look at the Reference Guide. It contains a lot of useful details about things that are important to know about upgrading.

Upgrading - Options

Detailed upgrade instructions that help you retain your customizations while upgrading to new features, see Standard Upgrade - Recommended Procedure.

Alternatively, if you have a very old copy of Zen Cart and just wish to keep your database but start with new files, see Database Only Upgrade.
