can't use PATCH

Post by andybezem »

Hi, I'm trying to upgrade my phpbb, but when I want to run the Patch order from Putty, I get the following error:

bash: patch: command not found

Any ideas of how to solve this?

It means that the patch utility has not been installed on the server or your host is not allowing you access to patch. You will have to modify the files locally and then upload them back to the server.
