When and How Should I Update Bridge.php File?

Starting from version 2.28.1.1495 Store Manager for Magento includes new functional possibilities, performance of which depends on bridge.php file.


Here they are:

  1. Now the application can check what Magento version you use and if it isn’t compatible or is partially compatible with this version, you will get a notifying message.
  2. “Reindex product data by bridge” option on Import Options step of product import wizard.

If you are using bridge connection to Magento database and updated Store Manager to 2.28.1.1495 (or newer), you have to update bridge.php file to version 7.52 (or newer). In case you are working via direct connection, you have to additionally upload bridge.php file to the server.

Contrariwise, Store Manager will not be able to detect Magento version (see the screenshot).
