OK. Done several installs. But, still with .10 and I would like to update. I haven't had any problems to speak of but.............. Simple question. Are there just a handful of files that will do the trick? Or, as I have seen/read is it pretty much a full install? The reason I ask is also simple. I do FTP on dial-up and anything to reduce the time of this process would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. William

The file public_html/docs/changed-files always contains a list of files that changed since the last full release. For 1.3.10 to 1.3.11, the list has 209 entries (most of it in PEAR).

William, here's a thought to save you time.

I dont know if you have an ftp-only account with your host. If not, and you can ssh to your serverspace, you may be able to completely eliminate getting the files to the local computer. Use something like wget or lynx from your host server to get the tarball there directly from geeklog.net at a much faster rate and do the switcheroo. (On one of my sites, this is how the first install as well as upgrades were done.)

All you need is a terminal running ssh connected to the host and the availability of lynx or wget (if its a linux based server, these are probably already there) and the fact that you are on dialup would become mostly irrelevant.

Just my two cents


Thanks for your suggestions ajzz. I'll look into it. William
