Updating a module by installing a newer version

Jan 27, 2011 at 9:58 PM


I created an update to one of my personal modules. It was just a small fix. I packaged it and tried to install the new module over the older one using the install module bit in the web admin.

I got a set of nice friendly messages telling me that all the files had been skipped because they already existed. Only one file had changed, but this was skipped as well.

I ended up doing the update manually. Is there a better way?

Have you tried this module? I tried to enabled this scenario specifically...

Thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for.
