The upgrade process notifies you if a file exists in the custom folder. I have always clicked ‘next’ and dealt with the consequences later, because i generally don’t have the time to go through every file.
However today i have the time, so thought i would to go through and check the files. I am upgrading using 7.11.X to 7.11.13.
The first two files it warns about are :
- include/tabConfig.php => custom/include/tabConfig.php
- include/language/en_us.lang.php => custom/include/language/en_us.lang.php
Neither of these files have changed since i upgraded to 7.11.12, so why are they included in the upgrade package? Presumably this is because they might have changed since 7.10?
If that’s the case it would be great to have an upgrade file which only contains files that have changes since the last upgrade. It would save a significant amount of time each time an upgrade is made, by avoiding checking files unnecessarily.
