Migration guide


  • Please remember to always make a database and file backup before updating your FoodCoopShop installation!
  • There is no automatic update tool, updating FoodCoopShop needs to be done manually. But it’s not too hard and this migration guide helps you.
  • Updating from v2.x to v3.x can only be done from v2.7.x Migration guide for v2.x

FCS v2.7.x to FCS 3.0.x

  • FCS v3.x uses CakePHP v4 as the base framework.
  • For the new major version v3 a lot of legacy code was removed. Please ensure that your last v2.x installation at least runs two full months in production before updating to v3! The reason is, that in v2.2 / v2.3 the invoice generation was changed. If you don’t use the invoice cronjob, you can update to v3 immediately.
  • app.dateOfFirstSendInvoiceCronjobWithPickupDayUpdate can be removed
