UNIX type patch application

Post by teste87 »

Where can I download it? Does it work with Windows? And -- as I applied a lot of MODs -- will it work fine? Because there're some part code that he'll not find right? So is there a way to apply it like a MOD? :roll:

Thanks

It only works on Unix servers. However, it also requires shell access (SSH/telnet), which is often not available.

If you don't meet these two requirements, you can try to run the patch "locally" on your Windows computer:
Take a look at these topics:
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.ph ... 231#129231 --> http://www.wzw.tu-muenchen.de/~syring/w ... Utils.html = http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/
but also
http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=204801 --> http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/

You should also take a look at http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=124463 , which seems to be what you are asking for.

The more MODs you have installed, the greater is the risk of problems. Also note that some MODs might need to get updated to 2.0.6. Always backup both files and database!

I had found a copy of the GNU patch for Windows here:

Though I will warn you that this is a Japanese site.

Oh here is another site of GNU Utilities ported for Windows. This one seems to be set up by GNU and I would probably recomended you get it from here

There is now a 4th way to upgrade. Acyd Burn has written this: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=124463 which can be plugged into this: http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=124436 to give a patch-like update on windows servers.

If you have problems with this, please post in this thread, not any of the others mentioned to simlify support for me, acyd and nuttzy :)
