Could always take it one step further and generate the chmod BEFORE you set them all to chmod 666, that way reverting back would be easier :)

Might take a bit of work in admin/patch.php, but would be nice to have, to go along with the writeable permissions ;)

Kudos as always to funky for a must needed addition to the patch/upgrade process.

And if you don't have SSH access to your server, I'd suggest learning some basic commands, or easiest, send the chmod list to your hosting provider.

Is there an FTP program that I can use this with? I'm using WS_FTP Pro, but not sure if there's a way to it that particlur one. Or can someone explain how to do it the other ways. Thank you.

First you have to go through the hassle of getting SSH rights on your server. They usually want you to fax a copy of your drivers license or such. Then go and get the program PUTTY (search it on google). SSH is a server command line situation, so make sure you study up on it first.

Thanks DB, was hoping for the easy way. :lol: :?

Just noted a unix shell command that makes changing permissions a breeze ;)

Set to writeable permissions:


for i in `sed -e 's/,.*$//g' < upgrade/3.4.9-3.5.0/file.lst`; do chmod 666 $i ; done

Set back to non-writeable permissions: (after upgrade is done)


for i in `sed -e 's/,.*$//g' < upgrade/3.4.9-3.5.0/file.lst`; do chmod 644 $i ; done
:!: NOTE: this command is being ran from the xcart/ install dir, where upgrade/ is a subdir.

Replace the directory names in upgrade/3.4.9-3.5.0/ to the proper versions, and each file in the file.lst will be set to chmod 666 for writeable permissions.

Kudos! :wink:

Thanks for that, Im learning SSH myself, and yes, it does give you a much better control over the environment, the whole server environment to be exact (has to be manipulated with care).
