Automatic update of ACE2 addons / cronjob / Question

Postby lunzet » Sun Dec 02, 2007 3:57 am

Can you already shed some light on how it will work? Can it be scheduled for automatic updates? or do I need to run my cronjob, retrieve the new files and then UA will detect those as new and calculate the MD5?

Thanks

since http is asynchronous (server cant act on its own without a request from an http client) it will need something like cron or task scheduler, chances are the admin user/pass will be sent to a special URL

Since a couple of weeks, some of the bigger webhosters 'over here' even offer for their low cost web hosting plans some kind of cron facilities on their server manage pages.

I'll gues that will be the one for me to use when I want to make this kind of stuff fully automatic.

Hi folks, I've worked on similar functionnalities :
- update all old wowace addons
- split "load on demand" addons (with shell script interpretation and path verification)
- preserve addons obligation while updating through wowace

This version is working, but can be improved.

For updating all wowace addons, I've used chained ajax requests, in order to stop process if user leaves the wowace page (problems in addon_temp directory if you have at the same time 2 addons updates). Another reason I use AJAX is the time limitation of a php execution.

About cron job, some providers can schedule a call to an url, so I've thinked about a script that update on wowace addon and finish by a HEAD http request (like GET method but without waiting for response body part). So it can launch another script with another time limit, etc...

Does this patch the release version or the current svn build?
