Set-up

M2E Pro Updater automates the process of installing and updating your M2E Pro. To start using the Updater, you should install it on your Magento first. Some technical skills are required to perform the procedure manually.

Use the following instructions to install or upgrade the M2E Pro Updater:

Step 1. Download the latest version of the M2E Pro Updater.

Step 2. Unpack the downloaded file into the Magento Core directory.

Step 3. Clear the Magento cache.

Step 4. After the Updater installed, add a new Cron job to run this file app/code/community/Ess/M2eProUpdater/m2epro_updater_cron.php. To do it, you can use the following Crontab Command: php [your-magento-shop-path]/app/code/community/Ess/M2eProUpdater/m2epro_updater_cron.php.

Note

Carefully follow the instructions above to set up the Updater properly. Otherwise, you will see a notification under System > Configuration > M2E Pro > Installation/Upgrade about missing proper Cron configurations.

Once the Module is installed, you will see the Installation tab under System > Configuration > M2E Pro. Here you can run an automatic M2E Pro installation. After you install M2E Pro, the tab name will change to Upgrade.

It is important to keep the Updater up to date to guarantee its correct work. Navigate System > Configuration > M2E Pro > Installation/Upgrade to check for a new version of the Module. Follow the set-up instructions to upgrade the Updater.

It's recommended to keep notifications on to stay informed about a new M2E Pro version released.
