Default Upgrade made easy

The biggest fall down in upgrading is the time to set file permissions - this will make it easier.

change skin1/admin/main/patch_apply.tpl to:

Code:
{include file="location.tpl" last_location="Applying patch"} {capture name=dialog} {if $patch_type eq "upgrade" and $patch_phase ne "upgrade_final"} CHECKING PATCH EXECUTABLE... {$patch_exe.patch_exe} ... {if $patch_exe.status eq "OK"} [<font color="green">OK</font>] {else} [<font color="red">{$patch_exe.status}</font>] {/if} </P> CHECKING UPGRADE PATCH INTEGRITY... {section name=result_line loop=$integrity_result} {$integrity_result[result_line].filename} ... {if $integrity_result[result_line].status eq "OK"} [<font color="green">OK</font>] {else} [<font color="red">{$integrity_result[result_line].status}</font>] {/if} {/section} </P> {/if} {if $patch_type eq "text" or ($patch_type eq "upgrade" and $patch_phase ne "upgrade_final")} CHECKING WRITE PERMISSIONS... {section name=file loop=$all_files_to_patch} {$all_files_to_patch[file].filename} ... {if $all_files_to_patch[file].status eq "OK"} [<font color="green">OK</font>] {else} [<font color="red">{$all_files_to_patch[file].status}</font>] {/if} {/section} IMPORTANT: It is recommended to backup these files. {if !empty($files_to_patch)} <FONT color=red>BEFORE YOU CONTINUE PLEASE SET WRITE PERMISSIONS ON FOLLOWING FILES</FONT> Copy this contents below and paste (right-click)into ssh whilst you are within the xcart directory <textarea cols=60 rows=10> {section name=file loop=$files_to_patch} chmod 666 {$files_to_patch[file]} {/section} </textarea> {/if} {/if} {if $confirm_patch ne "" and $patch_phase ne "upgrade_final"} <FORM action="patch.php" method=POST> <INPUT type=hidden name=mode value={$smarty.post.mode}> Patch text: <TEXTAREA cols=60 rows=10>{$patch_text|escape:"htmlall"}</TEXTAREA> <INPUT type=hidden name=patch_filename value="{$patch_filename}"> <INPUT type=hidden name=reverse value="{$reverse}"> <INPUT type=hidden name=confirmed value=Y> <INPUT type=button value="<< Go back" onClick="history.go(-1)"> <INPUT type=submit value="Continue >>"> </FORM> {/if} {if !empty($files_to_patch)} Note: After applying a patch please set the original permissions on changed files. {elseif $smarty.post.confirmed ne ""} APPLYING THE PATCH... {if $patch_phase eq "upgrade_final"} {section name=file loop=$patch_files} {$patch_files[file].orig_file} ... [{$patch_files[file].status}] {/section} PATCH RESULTS... {section name=line loop=$patch_result} {$patch_result[line]} {/section} PATCH LOG... {section name=line loop=$patch_log} {$patch_log[line]} {/section} {else} {section name=line loop=$patch_result} {$patch_result[line]} {/section} {/if} <FORM action="patch.php" method=get> <INPUT type=submit value="Finish >>"> </FORM> {/if} {/capture} {include file="dialog.tpl" title="Applying patch" content=$smarty.capture.dialog extra="width=100%"}

This will then produce a nice easy section in a text area to cut and paste into ssh or telnet or ftp manager to set all the file permissions in one go.

What FTP application would you guys recommend using with this?

I use WS FTP Pro but I can't figure out how to paste a whack of CHMOD commands in.

FYI, I'm a Windows user.

It's sort of like a user interface for SSH. Kind of like a FTP client program.

you can only use puTTY if you have SSH/Telnet access to the server... which I would always recommend getting a host where you have that. X-Cart would be a nightmare for me if I didn't have shell access!
