Dissecting a Patch or two? Package Installations by hand - their process and control from Wemin or SSH?
I am interested in looking at the details of a few patches, but not getting bogged down with the packages they may contain. Can scripts be easily read inside the patches? I am working in Windows as my workstation envirionment.
From this I want to see if I can go through the process of individually applying some of the patch sequences so that I can better understand the whole Linux/TKL process.
Finally, I would like to explore some variations. IE, I would like to install Zend Server CE over LAMP, and then Move a previous Magento installation into Lamp/Zend Apache setup.
Lots too learn I know. Unfortunately, the optics of "learning" are often lost on those who have already crossed the rubicon. It would seem that what I want to do is actually pretty simple. That said, all my instinct tells me to do is to build some folders, drop some tarballs in, run them (in the case of Zend), then build another folder (in Share or WWW?) for my Magento Install, import SQL into a new Magento Database (RootSQL user and Password noted), reconfigure config.xml type files,,, and shoot away. Of course there is the firewall, DNS good SSL setup that needs to be handled - and correctly pointed to.
I suppose it would be easiest to try moving the Magento without Zend First, but I fear there are a bunch of dependencies Magento normally builds in its own installation. (why I want to look at Patch scripts).
all for now. Remodelling time,
best and thank you,
