Patching magento on a Windows server?

Patching magento on a Windows server?

Hi,

 

We have Magento running on a Windows server with IIS. We've discovered a php bug which Magento have released a patch file for.

 

Does anyone know of a way of patching when using a Windows server as it wont run a bash script?

 

Thanks

patch file is made for your convenience, to download it and execute, it is nothing special, just a text file with diff command,
you can always open it, and read as a normal text file.

Hi

 

Thanks, but I've opened the file and whilst I can see it ends with the patch differences, Windows doesn't have a diff command. Are you saying I'd have to open each Magento file manually and make the relavent line by line changes to the source code, because that would be quite a task? (Not to mention the diff syntax in this instance doesn't make much sense to me).

 

Regards

 

 

 

 

Re: Patching magento on a Windows server?

thats what im talking about, if you not familiar with Windows server administration, you have to step off...

these questions will lead you to a dark room with no exit...

dig more http://serverfault.com/ answers, maybe it will help you.

Re: Patching magento on a Windows server?

What would lead you to believe I'm not familiar with Windows Administration given I know it doesn't include the diff command and I'm actually running Magento on a Windows server?

 

The correct answer to, "Does anyone know of a way of patching when using a Windows server as it wont run a bash script?", is either...

 

a) "No"

b) "No, short of manually pasting each change into the php files" (which has nothing to do with 'Windows Administration')

c) "Download a win32 binary of Diff, hope it's syntatically the same, and then convert the bash file to a batch file"

 

Patronisingly linking to serverfault.com and talking about dark rooms is honestly about as much use as a Magento patch SH file on a Windows server...
