I have about 6 Silverstripe sites, but on shared hosting so I'm not able to use Composer to manage them. I install and update them through Installatron in cPanel. They are all very simple sites - I have coded in any necessary functionality, so I'm not using any extra modules at all. I should add I have only been using Silverstripe for less than a year so still a beginner.
Installatron offers me a one-click upgrade and I tried that but the site crashed so I had to roll back to my backup. I have also tried installing a clean version of 3.2 into a test area, then copying in the mysite and theme folders but that failed too.
I've looked at the release notes and the upgrading notes but it seems to me like the upgrade process is fairly complicated, and I'm not sure how much is relevant or needed for my situation anyway. I think what I need is a "basic upgrading for dummies" guide. Or should I just stick with 3.1 for a while yet?
Thanks for the reply. I just tried it and it really was that easy! Just a matter of downloading the zipped 3.2 file, uploading the "CMS" and "Framework" folders to replace existing ones, and also uploading the new "siteConfig" and "Reports" folders.
