PrestaShop 1-click upgrade module

The PrestaShop 1-Click Upgrade module is a built-in tool provided by PrestaShop that allows you to easily upgrade your PrestaShop store to a newer version with just a few clicks. This module is designed to streamline the upgrade process and help you keep your online store up-to-date with the latest features, improvements, and security updates.

Here’s how you can use the PrestaShop 1-Click Upgrade module to upgrade your store:

  1. Backup Your Data: Before performing any upgrade, it’s crucial to create a complete backup of your store’s files and database. This ensures that you can revert back to the previous version if anything goes wrong during the upgrade process.
  2. Download and Install: In older versions of PrestaShop, the 1-Click Upgrade module might need to be downloaded and installed manually. However, in newer versions, it’s often pre-installed. If you don’t find it in your Modules section, you can download it from the official PrestaShop Addons marketplace.
  3. Configure Module Settings: Once the module is installed, navigate to the “Modules” section in your PrestaShop admin panel and find the “1-Click Upgrade” module. Configure any settings that are available, such as selecting the target version you want to upgrade to.
  4. Run the Upgrade: Click on the “Upgrade” button within the module interface. The module will guide you through the upgrade process, which includes steps like verifying your shop’s compatibility, downloading necessary files, performing the upgrade, and updating the database.
  5. Monitor Progress: The module will display the progress of the upgrade. Depending on the size of your store and the changes involved in the upgrade, this process might take some time. Do not interrupt the process until it completes.
  6. Review and Test: After the upgrade is completed, review your store thoroughly to ensure that everything is functioning as expected. Test various aspects of your store, including product pages, categories, checkout process, payment gateways, and any custom features.
  7. Theme and Modules: It’s possible that your store’s theme and some modules might need updates to be compatible with the new PrestaShop version. Check with the theme developer and module providers for any available updates.
  8. Debug and Troubleshoot: If you encounter any issues after the upgrade, refer to the error logs and the PrestaShop community forums for assistance. You might need to debug and resolve any compatibility or customization issues that arise.
  9. Keep Backups: Even after a successful upgrade, keep backups of your previous version in case you need to revert back for any reason.

Remember that upgrading your PrestaShop store is a significant process that involves potential risks, especially if you have custom themes, modules, or code modifications. It’s recommended to perform upgrades in a test environment first to ensure compatibility and to avoid disrupting your live store.
