But as long OC Users don't understand - that an UPGRADE could only function,
if an older Version OC Software has not been enhanced in any form, i.E., by adding
other Themes, Fixes, and Extensions - it's of no use, trying to tell them, to then stay
away from socalled Upgrades, if their existing System works in order.
Therefore, why should anyone care about such Dreamers, it would be just wasted time.
They want to play the free Upgrade-Game, hoping to so eventually get their Gold-Mine,
without knowing and/or doing much about it. So, let them play. And it does not really matter,
if the screw up, most of them will never be able run a successful Shop anyway. Just like in real
Life, where those usually succeed, aware of, what they are doing !
Good Luck !

- After copying the 'upload' directory contents (and before loading the install/upgrade URL in your browser), you need to clear out the contents of your 'system/storage/modification' directory (leaving the index.html file).
- You will need to remove all the '.tpl' files from your installation (they're all replaced with '.twig' files).
- You MUST have backups of your OpenCart installation & database(s) before you begin!
- You will likely lose/break any custom modifications/extensions/themes/etc.
What I've done so far is to leave my 2.2 version running on my old server and have done a fresh install of 3.0.2 on the new one.
I've then gone through all the database tables and copied them across where nothing has changed, or migrated the data where something has. (There are some new tables, and a few existing tables have an extra field, or omit a field, so it's not a straightforward "replace everything".)
Now I'm tweaking and customising 3.0.2 to get it behaving how I want it, whilst I learn to use it, before I make the switch.
I'm fortunate that my current 2.2 version isn't all that active right now, so I have the time to work on the new version. I also don't use any third party extensions/mods. I learned from past upgrades that extensions/mods are a recipe for frustration and heartache when it comes time to update OC, so I try to manage without them these days.
Just when you import data table by table you have to follow a specific sequence otherwise you will have some empty fields . Except if you going to import all of them one time and then re-import them to follow the empty fields .
Still, I would remind some of you who's considering an upgrade, 3.0.x has a lot more buggings that its precursor 2.3.x. So if your business is running well with an old platform, just keep focusing to grow your sales. Or just in case you looking for a whole different place for your store, migrating your OP to another builder is an ideal solution.[DO NOT try to follow the upgrade.txt file. Enough has changed internally from 2.3.x to 3.0.x that all themes, modifications, and any other extensions will need to be upgraded separately (and few have been updated to support 3.0.x yet anyway)
