    โฌ†๏ธ UPGRADE from version 3.0.2

    For this version an upgrade is required, which means that some configuration files will need to be adapted. Therefore please read the UPGRADE.TXT file first. The 3.0.2_to_3.1.1.sql migration script needs to be executed on your server. Just copy paste the contents into a phpMyAdmin SQL console or execute it from the command line.

    โฌ†๏ธ WARNING: Always a good idea to do a backup previous to an upgrade. This is not an exception.

    • Backup your database.
    • ๐ŸŒ Backup your ospos files (normally at web server place)
    • Backup your ospos/application/config/database.php and ospos/application/config/config.php files
    • โœ‚ Remove all your ospos files (do not remove nor modify database data!!!)
    • Extract the files for version 3.1.1
    • ๐Ÿšš Move the files to your web server place
    • โฌ†๏ธ Run the database upgrade scripts
    • Copy application/config/database.php.tmpl to application/config/database.php
    • โช Restore the content of your ospos/application/config/database.php and ospos/application/config/config.php files in the new files
    • ๐Ÿšš Move the content of old uploads dir to public/uploads
    • ๐Ÿ‘‰ Make sure your webroot points to public/ directory as index.php is now contained there
    • ๐ŸŒฒ Log into OSPOS and go to Migrate, execute the migration step (required for the new Tax support)
    • Now you are good to go and use your new version of OSPOS
