    It's important that you don't just click install. There are multiple installations of Miva on the beta stream and you need to pick the correct one. Click "Review and Manually Select Updates for Installation" then click continue.

    On the next screen select "uncheck all" and "collapse all" then select Miva 9.0007-beta-1 to install which should be the last option.

    Run the updates and your test store should now be on the 9.0007 beta.

    From here you can click add store and play around with the new features that are part of 9.0007.

  3. Request Access for your Dev store
  4. The second way to use the 9.0007 beta is to request your dev store be upgraded. This will allow you to have a copy of your live store located at a subdomain (dev.domain.com) get upgraded to the beta stream. This will allow you to use your real data to test against the beta.

    To request your dev store be upgraded to the beta, email bheyde@miva.com along with the store you would like to get upgraded to the beta.
