How to install Hot Fix
I have an issue which I found in the bug tracker and also I found a solution in Github.
So my question is, how do I install a hotfix from github.
What I did is, I downloaded the php files mentioned in the hotfix and copied them to the respective folder under .../concrete/.....
In addition I also cleared all caches.
But the problem still exists.
So my question is, did I do something wrong?
Do I need an additional step?
Thank you for any hint...
So I did the right thing to install the fixed.
Now I need to recheck whether I selected the right files.
The safest way to have a 'pure' installation that includes a github commit is to install that whole github branch. Since you're probably talking about the develop branch, that's risky because it isn't stable.
Yes I found out after considering the comment of weyboat.
System behaves "funny" now...
As I read from github some specific changes to 4 files have been made.
According tohttps://github.com/concrete5/concrete5/pull/5840/files... 4 files were changed and I had hoped that the files there just contained those changes.
But there seem to be more changes in these files.
So I will try to edit the files manually...
That made the change!
I had installed into the original "concrete" folder.
System behavior changed.
"Surgery successful --> patient dead" :-)
But now I know what the process is...
Its an easy mistake to make, I have tripped up a few times myself with that one!
