I have osCommerce 2.2-MS2 on MySQL 3.x PHP 4.3.8,
I would like to transfer the application to new server with PHP 5.3.3 MySQL 5.x

tried the "Community Add-Ons OSC V2.2 RC2a PHP 5.3", so far with out success,

so, thinking maybe I should u/g to 2.3.2, is that the suggested path ?

if that's the best option, I'm not clear on actual u/g procedure:

is this a single step 2.2MS to 2.3.2 ?

do I copy 2.3.2 files over existing files ? and, run the two SQL steps?

or do I do new installation, run the two SQL procedures, and, hook up to existing database ?

also, I'm using 'must be logged to see prices' mod, do I need to reapply that afterwards ?

what about all the code changes in the docs, do I need to apply them as well ?

thanks for any pointers.

There is no upgrade path from MS2 to v2.3.2. The only recourse is to create a NEW cart using 2.3.2.

thanks. so, I install 2.3.2 and, import old ? customers/products ?
this is an 'internal site' with limited customers, used as a catalog to display info/photos
I don't need to transfer orders, just custmers database and products database (I think ?)

@voytek

Yes, you can integrate the existing database, but be careful, the tables have changed so you will need to be familiar with SQL to complete the integration.
