How does the version update process work? What about plugin file mods?
Here's an outline of how the Software Updates process works (technically). Note: This page really meant for plugin developers, modders, etc.
User clicks "install this update" and then it...
- Downloads tgz file for choosen update build from Soholaunch's servers to the docroot folder. Docroot must be writeable or will error here.
- Extracts build tgz file in docroot on top of existing program files
- Re-installs all plugin file modifications to newly copied set of program files.
