Software upgrades are important as they allow your store to stay secure and up-to-date with the latest features released. For this reason you should make sure you upgrade your X-Cart store regularly.
X-Cart software code and addons are upgraded independently from each other to ensure data safety and overall software stability. If anything goes wrong with an addon upgrade, you can simply disable the addon that may have caused the problem without affecting the main store functioning.
Starting from X-Cart 5.4.x all software and addons upgrades are perfromed in a special environment (X-Cart Service Screen) separate from the rest of the store. This was done to ensure that any changes applied to a store via new core updates or present addons’ upgrade or deletion can be safely rolled back in case of any malfunction.
