Developer Recommendations for Upgrading from 2.2 to latest version

4 posts in this topic

We are running 2.2.MS2 and need to upgrade for OS, MySQL and PHP version reasons.  I'd be very interested in any experience you have with any OsCommerce developer who helped you with your migration/upgrade or implementation.  Obviously, they need to be professional, experienced, thorough, timely and reasonably priced.   Positive or negative experiences welcomed.  Please share.

 

Thanks in advance.

The migration can be easy or not, depends about the contribution, the code to update, the date of the release.

@@kennyk  Ken if it were me I would post in the Commercial Support Enquiries forum on here and then when you get a quote research the developer on the forums here and in the feedback forum.  We should be supporting the developers who are active here.

I contacted @@burt who transferred all my site over to bootstrap version. That was 12 months ago now, and apart from a few simple easy to put right errors, the site has worked flawlessly with my old database. He did go above and beyond what he was contracted to do, which was a plus. He talked me through setting up the paypal app, and did loads more. He developed the bootstrap version so knows the code inside out. Cant praise him highly enough.
