ShopManager User Guide - v3.1.5

Upgrading to v3.1.2

To upgrade to ShopManager v3.1.2 from v3.1.1, please follow these instructions:

  1. Download the ShopManager v3.1.2 Upgrade from the client portal.
  2. IMPORTANT: Backup your SM database, and entire SM folder. Whilst data loss is very unlikely, it's better to be safe than sorry!
  3. If you have made any changes to any template files, please make a note of these changes so you can re-apply them after the upgrade. There have been major changes to the template files (particularly for the new Tax system), so it is recommended to use the new templates and re-apply your modifications, rather than attempting to upgrade exisiting files.
  4. Paste the downloaded SM v3.1.2 into the SM v3.1.1 folder. When asked to replace existing files, select OK.
  5. Open http://{yourdomain}/upgrade in your web browser.
  6. Once your database has been upgraded, delete the file: _application/controllers/upgrade.php
  7. You can now re-apply any template changes you had previously. All printable templates are now in the _application/views/template/ folder with the format: type_name.php - e.g. jobs_receipt_out.php, onsite_receipt_proforma.php
  8. Open _application/config/shop_manager.php and change the version from 3.1.1 to 3.1.2
  9. You can now login. Open the 'Admin -> Staff' menu item, and edit your store's details down the bottom. This is now the info that will show on receipts and invoices (rather than the biz_lang.php file).
  10. Open 'Admin -> Tax' menu item, and add your tax rate(s) as applicable.
  11. Your ShopManager should now be upgraded!
