How to update the Geo POS from Build X to Y
Example X =50 and Y=53
In this guide, I will provide you a method to easy update. This is a texual guide, you can watch the video guide here https://youtu.be/v-7fZn449tc. Before performing an update you should take your site offline by renaming the folder to avoid any data loss or payments transactions that can be done by your customer. It is compulsory that you should update the software on every new release, if you skip versions than you can not upgrade.
Note! This guide is not applicable for fresh installations.
Step One : Backup the application
Please create a full backup of application ,it is mandatory. Additionally, it will be helpful in case of update failure or raise an issue. Please follow these steps.
- Login to application as business owner(admin).
- Go to BACKUP & EXPORT section.
- Here you will find Backup Database, download a backup of database.
- Now login to server control panel.
- Crate a backup folder in your server document directory, i.e. yourapp_backup.
- Move your current installed Geo POS project's all files to yourapp_backup folder.
Step Two : Uploadling the new update
- Now extract the latest package of Geo POS which has been downloaded by you recently from codecanyon.net to an other folder/location.
- After extraction you will see files_to_upload folder.
- Move files_to_upload folder's all files to your current installed Geo POS project folder. (Where you had installed the application, make sure that directory is empty.).
- Do not forget upload .htaccess also becasue many it remains hidden
Step Three : Files update
As we have crated a backup folder yourapp_backup in STEP ONE, go there and...
Step Four : Database updateYou have to import upgrade_archive/update_build_X*.sql to you database.
Here X* means your next build number - if your current build is 50 but avaiable build is 53 than select one-by-one
> upgrade_archive/update_build_51.sql > upgrade_archive/update_build_52.sql > upgrade_archive/update_build_53.sql
You can ignore 0KB size files - it indicated no database change in the particular build example update_build_51.sql.
