Title: Automatic Upgrade
Post by: 31special on October 14, 2008, 04:00:03 PM
Hello,

The Help Center Live comes with a tool to automatically update the software?

I want to make sure the software is up to date for any security announcements.

Thanks in advanced

it used to have a check for when there is a update and give a little message of some kind in the admin area.
But no automatic install as that requires some stuff that can be a security risk.
Mainly due to people not always knowing 100% what to do.
but also cause i think you need safemode OFF to download from other servers.
Best is to simply have a warning show in HCL admin area when a update is released.
HCL 3.0 is coming soon in beta and hopefully soon in Release.
If a warning is not coded into it i will code one for it ;).

Best way to make sure you are up2date with it is to check the site once in a while.

And that reminds me. Perhaps we should make a mailing list for updates and security warnings for HCL.
i will poke someone about that :).

Version 3.0.0 will be updated automatically.  When it's released you'll understand why this is possible.  If you download 2.1.7 you will be informed in your admin when 3.0.0 is ready for general release.
