I'm going from 3.2.5 to 3.2.7 today and decided to try the automatic update package, again.
Last time, lumpy said
And I was told that doing a full install was the recommended method. The problem is that I prefer the ease of the auto update/ftp method AND I've modified colors and such. When you go to download the automatic update package it saysthings changed a few versions ago and the auto update has problems as you have seen.
The auto update has known problems? Just for some people? And, if there are known problems, are they being addressed? I'm not complaining as much as it might sound(tone is lost of course on the internet, sometimes) but it's a little painful to see something say "here, your board is modded? this is what you ought to use..." and then find out that it is known to cause some people problems.This update package supplies the automatic updater, which is capable of updating modified installations. This is the package that most users should download to update their forums. If you have made no changes, you can use the 'Changed Files' package instead.
I probably should have asked about it BEFORE trying it again but, it used to work with no problems for me before. Would be great if there was a disclaimer or something.
So... now that I got started with the auto update and am stuck... should I just go through that old topic and do whatever I did to get it to work last time?
I uploaded the Install folder, went to it, started the process of updating things, it showed which files would be changed etc... then... timeout. Can't do anything else at that point.
If I do the full package then all the modifications I've done to layout and color are lost.
Saw in another discussion that downloading the changed files was the best option and shouldn't cause problems as there were no changes in the color files.
So, is that the best route? And, what do I need to do now to undo anything I might have started with uploading and trying to start the auto package? I just want to do it correctly and not just try different things til something works or makes it worse... HA.
Most important thing is getting my board updated and running again... but after that, what happened that I can't get the auto update process to work these days?
