I'd set aside a considerable amount of time today to perform an upgrade but was pleasantly surprised by the simplicity and speed with which the auto-upgrade worked.
I normally spend a hugh amount of time uploading the files to my server because I've got a constrained upload speed.
Thank you for the improvements to the Auto-Upgrader - It's working fantastic!
I agree, it's really fast and much quicker than uploading yourself by ftp. Some comments:
The upgrader uploads config_global.php.dist - I reckon there should be a warning to remove this as it's only required in a new installation.
My existing global_config.php file had its permissions changed to 777. I went almost a day before picking this up. It should be 444 or 644.
The upgrader uploads Media_path.php.dist - Again I don't think is required when doing an upgrade.
I certainly be using the upgrader from now on. Upgrade times have gone from around an hour of being offline to being offline for a couple of minutes.
I'm glad this has been working out well. We are continuing to improve the auto upgrader as needed over time.
