Before upgrade

Recommended that you DO NOT upgrade AbanteCart on the live site. Depending on your server or OS configuration upgrades might not go all the way through and you will need more time for a manual upgrade. We suggest you upgrade your test site first and always create backups.

Upgrades are available only from the prior version to the next. If you do not upgrade for a long time, you will need to run all upgrades in between. If you are made Core modifications in any of the files that changed, they may need to be redone.

Download upgrade package

Download upgrade package from the AbanteCart Github releases page or for older versions Google Drive and


Finally include upgrade.php file somewhere in admin controller. Say in /folder_where_cart_installed/admin/controller/common/head.php in about line 30.




Load admin page once! This will execute PHP update script and will run commands from the upgrade.php file

Remove the include line.
