Now the site displays nothing but a blank page.
I'm starting to think that Magento isn't worth the trouble.
security patch PATCH_SUPEE-5344_CE_126.96.36.199_v1-2015-02-10-0-8-10-38.sh
After applying the patch, I have checked the error_,log and I have the following:
PHP Fatal Error: Class "Varien_Db_Adapter_Pdo_Mysql' not found in '/home/website/www/data/lib/Magento/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Mysql.php on line 35
First of all, my experience with Magento (and any kind of development) it's good to test these changes to your webshop before applying them to your live environment. But since that's easy to say afterwards, here are some of my ideas about this.
You can check the files that are modified in the file app/etc/applied.patches.list. The patch applies changes to several files. One of them is the file you mentioned. Does that file still exist and do other files that are changed by the patch (f.e. app/code/core/Mage/Oauth/controllers/Adminhtml/Oauth/AuthorizeController.php) still exist? And did you apply the correct version of the patch, since there are differences between Magento versions and the patches you need to apply.
Are you using Git or anything like that?
I had to go to a backup copy......
And yes this was our test environment not production....
We have not moved to a production environment yet. I'm still not that confident in Magento.
One of the issues I found was this:
When applying the patch to a FREEBSD 10 install it does not let you know if the patch application has completed. If you end it, you'll get very nasty results...
Best thing to do if its just sitting there for a very long time ( give it at least 15 minutes to complete), is to just press the enter key....
That will force it to show the prompt when it has completed the application.
Just so everyone is clear, I don't apply patches to a production machine.....
Just, wow. 5433 is a minnow's breakfast as patches go.
15 mintes to apply, not sure what's going on there.
Linux live for me was done with the patching as soon as I hit return. (power of SSD IO FTW)
