Absolute Newbie Half Conquered Putty
Ok, so. Get ready to laugh at my malapropisms, I am sure this question will be littered with them. I apologize in advance.
I am upgrading my Joomla via patching with SSH. I have used the How to Update your Joomla tutorial and it has carried me successfully to the last step. Argh.
I am stuck (I think) because for some reason I have the wrong command to unzip the package file. It copied over and saved to the server fine. BUT for some reason when I type in the last two commands described in the tutorial Putty does not recognize the directory and then has trouble with the suffix.... Here are my commands....
gzip -d Joomla_1.5.3_to_1.5.7-Stable-Patch_Package.tar.gz
The tar.gz file now has a .tar extension so type:
tar -xvf Joomla_1.5.3_to_1.5.7-Stable-Patch_Package.tar
and I get a no such file or directory.
Oh wise Forum!! I would so appreciate anyone's help. I know sometimes its a trial dealing with a newbie, but I can promise good karma might abound. (?)
