I hope that's not the the entire community, as it is a small exclusive group that, from what I've read automatically drops people after a couple of months.

osCommerce has not been updated in years.

I know.. Still, to me Phoenix is a much needed visual update of osCommerce with PHP 7 support, rather than a different product. The file structure is the same, database is largely the same, etc. I could be wrong, that's just my own lowly opinion, whatever that's worth.

Evidently not restricted as you have found my work on github.

You are right, it is not restricted, just not readily available here. I couldn't find any upgrade information on this site/forum, and it seemed odd to me, hence I was just trying to give feedback, maybe even help others that may find themselves in my situation. In any case, I am sorry if my post irritated anyone, especially people that contribute their time and expertise to this product. It wasn't my intention at all.

I have found using a file comparison utility quite helpful. My favorite is Beyond Compare.

I have been using the original osCommerce version for years on a shop. I wanted to upgrade to CE Phoenix for the responsive template and PHP 7 compatibility. I installed CE Phoenix version 1.7.11 two months ago in December on a test shop and made few customizations. I just got some more time, and would like to update to the now current 1.7.14.  Teatv  boi hrms

Phoenix now has its own forum here

The current version is 1.0.8.6.

For help on PHOENIX, you must ask the question on their forum.

Hello,

I received a request to upgrade a OSCommerce 2.2 RC2 with tons of customization with the info box and style css to OSCommerce 2.3.4 2.3.4 BS EDGE responsive

So obviously I need to update both the database (the easy part), and the design (could be a lot of work).

Do anyone knows an easy way, or a file comparison list. Or everything has to be redone?

No there is no easy way. If you want to stay on the V2 path, then see Fred's post above yours.

@hwong050You may want to wait for the release of V4 to see if it has all that you need.
