HOW to make your own patches for securityimages

HOW to make your own patches for securityimages

Just in case I take too much time to deliver a ready to use download, duration 5 minutes, but you need to understand basic php coding

  1. Create a temporary directory c:\patch
  2. Copy an existing patch distribution, under a new name
    For example, lets download into c:\patch\ and copy it to c:\patch\
  3. Download the latest full zip package of #Joomla that target the patch (here 1.5.14), so I download and save it in the same directory c:\patch\
  4. Now download a free trial copy of Beyond compare from and install this great application
  5. Select the 2 zip files, and right click “compare”
  6. Now it is like a game, on the left side, you have you patch that need to be updated with the latest #Joomla! core changes, just edit every file present on the left and update line that are new or changed till you are finished. Luckily there is only 14 files to merge
  7. Test the result in a #Joomla test instance.

I do this for you at each release of #Joomla!
