Do I have to reinstall <sigh>

Recommended Posts

I have a copy of Frozen installed - can I just FTP the Phoenix files up and just overwrite the Fozen files (I'll just remod any files I modded in Frozen, in Phoenix).

Or do I have to wipe and do a complete reinstall (sigh)?

If you just FTP, you'll end up with orphan files (files in Frozen that are not in Phoenix). 
I suggest to (sigh) install a new Phoenix elsewhere and have a play with it before doing anything else.

Thank you, as always Burt - I'll do a fresh install.

Just to have a little play with.  Note that 1.0.1.0 will be out imminently, just waiting on finalised testing of one new feature, so may be worth waiting a short while.

Once you have had a play, start to replicate your changes from Frozen, and then when happy just import your products/categories & customers/orders etc.

Has any of the database fields / structure changed?

My existing Frozen site was in test stage anyway - so will remove existing site and copy the files to the same server / folder.

Just wanting to know if I do a fresh install, what will happen to the existing database?

Which version of PHP will Phoenix run on stably?

I had Frozen running on PHP 7.1 as I understand that this was the max version of PHP that it was compatible with....  are we ok to move to PHP 7.3 yet?

I've just upgraded to PHP 7.3. So far the latest version ( v1.0.1.0 ) of Phoenix works fine.

Is it possible to put in the 'read me' for the site code in GitHub exactly which versions of PHP Phoneix works with - as we go along and corrobate what works?

At the moment the read me specifys as Maximum of PHP 7.1.x.

More specific would be helpful... if this is practical.

What do others think?

I guess when enough people report it's OK an xyz version, that's the time to do that...

I agree. At the moment 7.3 is ok for me.

This is from a fresh install of 1.0.0.4, then with v 1.0.1.0 added. I will let the community know if I run in to any problems.

Thank you for everyone's hard work in making this happen. As I learn more, I will try and contribute more.

I'm doing all addon updates and development on a local PHP 7.3.2 installation with Phoenix 1.0.0.4 and since today 1.0.1.0  and no problems until now.
