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?
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.
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).
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...
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...
