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...

  1. Downloads tgz file for choosen update build from Soholaunch's servers to the docroot folder. Docroot must be writeable or will error here.
  2. Extracts build tgz file in docroot on top of existing program files
  3. Re-installs all plugin file modifications to newly copied set of program files.
