osCommerce 2.2-MS2 to 2.3.4 Migration - Columns, InfoBoxes, and Pages Not Showing

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I migrated the db from 2.2-MS2 to 2.3.4 using the SQL commands from: https://apps.oscommerce.com/2qqbU (used the latest "RC2 indices corrected").

I connected the updated database to the core 2.3.4 osCommerce files and my products are displaying. But my columns, categories, infoboxes, and pages are not displaying: http://www.newhallstation.net/estore/

Compare with the live site:  http://www.newhallstation.com/store/

Can anyone tell what I might have missed?

Never mind.... Just saw another thread about this very same issue: https://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/395397-upgrade-to-234-from-older-releases-with-migration-upgrade/  "2.3.3.4 doesn't have includes/boxes directory. This has significantly changed since 2.2 - I believe these are now modules. You can find the files at includes/modules/boxes (don't bother trying to move your files over... whatever changes you made in your 2.2 store will have to be redone)."

Will try to go a different route since the site layout/design works differently in 2.3.4. https://forums.oscommerce.com/topic/397626-moving-oscommerce-22-ms2-to-new-site-with-fresh-2334/

The development link http://www.newhallstation.net/estore/ will stop working as I continue to test and configure db and try the new approach to see if it works better:

1. copy and convert old db (2.2-MS2) to meet 2.3.4 specs

2. export individual tables from old converted db

3. import tables to fresh copy of new (2.3.4) db

4. check for errors and missing fields and/or tables

Are you upgrading to 2.3.3.4 or 2.3.4? Both of those are quite obsolete and should not be used. You want to install (not upgrade code) to osC 2.3.4 BS Edge, which is the only production-ready version that will run on current PHP levels. You will still need to migrate your database, as you have been trying to do. Then you will have to find and apply the add-ons you want and do other customization. But above all, you need to be at Edge, or it's all wasted effort.
