Thank you robert for taking time to reply... I just want to understand the process in order to, hopefully, avoid issues with future updates.
When you say:

During the automatic update process, are files downloaded to my local machine prior to being uploaded back to the server? or is all the work done on the server (in memory/temp disk storage) and the reason the ftp username/password are needed is for the permissions to write the edited files to their required locations?
Please excuse me if I seem to be getting too anal retentive about this, but anytime I have to give username/password information (especially to an automated process) I like to know if it is being stored anywhere, i.e., a plain text file... Also, if any work is being done by the process that is local to my machine, could local temp storage, virus software, etc., be a factor in various update issues, i.e., timing issues (delays) caused by virus scanning?
Thank you again, and thanks to the phpBB Community...
