Migrating plugin from Prestashop 1.5.x, 1.6.x to 1.7.1 or higher

There are two different paths of an upgrade procedure depending on currently installed module version when you are migrating from Prestashop 1.5.x, 1.6.x to 1.7.1 or higher.

If you have ORBITVU SELF HOSTED plugin version 1.2.4 or lower

  1. Disable Orbitvu SELF HOSTED plugin on modules list.
  2. Upgrade Prestashop to the version 1.7.1 or higher.

    If you make a fresh installation of Prestashop 1.7.x and want to import old database to the new Prestashop, please make sure that:

    a) in (ps_)module table you have an entry with old plugin, for example:
    name: orbitvush, active: 0, version: 1.2.4

    b) you imported old ORBITVU SELF HOSTED plugin tables together with their data: (ps_)orbitvu_sh_configuration, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_log, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_products_presentations, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_products_presentations_history, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_products_presentations_items, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_products_thumbnails.

    c) you copied old plugin folder (modules/orbitvush) to the new Prestashop's module path.

  3. Install the new ORBITVU SELF HOSTED plugin for Prestashop version >= 1.7.1 and go to its configuration page.
  4. Above module configuration page you should see "Migration tool". If all necessary requirements are ok, then click "start migration".
  5. Once migration is finished, please go to the product's edit page and check if all presentations are available and properly linked.
  6. If everything is fine, you may uninstall and delete old module.
  7. Don't forget to copy new "Remote upload url" to your Alphashot Editor.

If you have ORBITVU SELF HOSTED plugin version 2.0.0 or higher:

  1. Disable Orbitvu SELF HOSTED plugin on modules list.
  2. Export data (only data) from tables: (ps_)orbitvu_sh_presentation, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_product_presentation, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_product_presentation_item, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_product_presentation_history to a sql file.
  3. Make backup of a folder with presentations: "YourPrestaPath/modules/orbitvushn/_orbitvu_presetations"
  4. Upgrade Prestashop to the version 1.7.1 or higher.
  5. If you have fresh database and installation of Prestashop 1.7.1, install the new ORBITVU SELF HOSTED plugin and go to the step 6.

    If not, please uninstall and delete the old plugin and make sure that there are no tables and settings related to the old plugin:

    a) remove tables, if exist: (ps_)orbitvu_sh_product_presentation, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_product_presentation_item, (ps_)orbitvu_sh_product_presentation_history

    b) in (ps_)module table remove an entry with old plugin, for example: name: orbitvushn, active: 0, version: 2.0.2

    c) install the new ORBITVU SELF HOSTED plugin.

  6. Copy backuped folder from step 3 to "YourPrestaPath/modules/orbitvushn/".
  7. Import data from sql file created in step 2, to the new Prestashop 1.7.1 or higher database.
  8. Don't forget to copy new "Remote upload url" to your Alphashot Editor.
