PrestaShop Upgrade

Take the hassle out of upgrading PrestaShop, by having it professionally handled and with a test upgrade done first.

We can upgrade your PrestaShop installation to the latest version, along with upgrading outdated modules. When we do upgrades, we ensure that all of your modules and everything else will work properly on the upgraded website by setting up a test of the upgrade in a directory on your website first, so that we and you can test out the new version before having the upgrade applied to the production website.

In most instances, if you are having a problem with the website, upgrading PrestaShop won't resolve that, but we can usually resolve that issue while working on the upgrade

Applying the upgrade to the production website takes only a matter of minutes, but we can schedule to apply it during off hours to avoid even limited downtime from impacting important visits to your website when that is happening. While the testing of the upgrade first should negate the need for a backup when upgrading the production website, we make another backup before upgrading the production website.

Once the upgrade is completed, we will resolve any PHP warnings that are showing up the error_log due to third-party code that hasn't been made fully compatible with more recent versions of PHP. We can also help to get the website moved to the most recent version of PHP supported by the website's web host and PrestaShop.

The whole upgrade process can usually be completed within a week of you getting in touch with us.

We also offer a subscription service for doing PrestaShop upgrades on an ongoing basis.
