    Hello guys,

    I find the update procedure (uploading the content of the "update" folder with an FTP client) to be less than optimal to say the least... especially since this weird "overwriting(don’t replace, but overwrite)" is FTP client-dependent...

    Why not instead just upload a zip file of the update folder, and then run some command line to extract the content of this folder and do the same "overwriting" that the FTP client does (if properly configured lol)?

    maybe through some "mv" or "cp" command?

    Anyone has found the proper command lines to run?

    Thanks a lot,

    Cheers,

    lmao, 25K files to send through FTP in the latest update, this does NOT make any sense...

    We need proper instruction on how to do this by just uploading 1 zip file and then extracting it and moving or cp'ing the content.

    You can enable auto-update from backend > settings > common.
    Other than this, the update procedure is standard for web based apps, upload files, overwrite existing ones, etc.
