Upgrade Magento

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

It is strongly recommended to create a backup before starting the update process. If you have important data, create and try to restore a backup to ensure that everything works properly.

You can upgrade the application only without modifying any other stack components, as described below:

  • Ensure that you establish a PHP memory limit of at least 2 GB, in installdir/php/etc/php.ini:

  • Restart Apache:

    $ sudo installdir/ restart apache
  • Visit the Magento Marketplace and obtain your public/private access key pair using the “My Account -> Connect -> Developers -> Secure Keys” section. If you don’t have a Magento Marketplace account, create one here.
