Thanks Garvin for your fast support :) (and thanks to Nenad :D)

Dear Garv.

Didn't you plan to support auto-update in your 0.9 release?! a daily or weekly auto-update?

regards.

No, I never planned that. I always said this will never be implemented because it would require world-writable s9y installation, which I do not ever want to propose. :)

We thought about giving upgrade notices on the backend, but I haven't got the time to look at that yet. The backend_rss plugin baiscally can do this by showing the blog.s9y.org feed...

what about FTP? auto-update via FTP?

is it not safer :> but it is very EASY to automatically update every week.

Doing FTP via PHP would either require FTP extensions or a PHP userspace implementation, which is a bit slow. So you could easily garbage your whole blog because of Server timeouts, broken connections or whatever. So this could be very unstable.

Maybe someone wants to have a go at that? It could be coded into the spartacus plugin, or maybe even in the new backup plugin by dma147...

I just downloaded the file several times (http://peterhost.dl.sourceforge.net/sou ... 8.5.tar.gz) and have no corruption. Can you check your network connection or download from a different compute?

Best regards,
Garvin

well, as far as i know, i downloaded several other tar.gz files while & after that, they came out fine, so i didn't think it was my network. maybe because i use winrar to unpack them? but same thing happened with those files too.

have you tried on those servers i mentioned? sourceforge isn't faultless right, sometimes they're missing new release on some of their servers, takes a several days to finally updated.

s9y.tar.gz from that server you told me, http://peterhost.dl.sourceforge.net/, i got error on too, so i guess it's normal :? ? but i had errors on fresh install,

Code: Select all

/Table 'serendipity.sentries' doesn't exist
etc...

maybe i should wait till v1.0

The error definitely comes from a garbaged download! I honestly suspect that you or your provider has network issues.

Please try to download the file from here:
