    Default dist_configure.php error on logs directory path

    In the dist-configure files you have

    define('DIR_FS_CATALOG', '/');

    //the following path is a COMPLETE path to the /logs/ folder eg: /var/www/vhost/accountname/public_html/store/logs ... and no trailing slash
    define('DIR_FS_LOGS', DIR_FS_CATALOG . '/logs');

    Entering the full path in 'DIR_FS_CATALOG with the trailing / creates a double slash in the logs directory path.

    define('DIR_FS_LOGS', DIR_FS_CATALOG . '/logs');

    should be

    define('DIR_FS_LOGS', DIR_FS_CATALOG . 'logs');

    Thanks. We'll fix that in a future release.

    But, you really should never use dist-configure.php directly. You should ALWAYS let zc_install build the correct configure.php file contents for you.

    Default Re: dist_configure.php error on logs directory path

    If i'm doing upgrades i don't run the installer through the steps where it builds the configure.php files though. I run zc_install just to update the database and then copy the dist-configure.php file and copy in the details from the clients original configure.php files, so in this circumstance, the error could catch the unwary out.

    So, you never stage your clients' upgrades in a safe place first?

    Default Re: dist_configure.php error on logs directory path

    Did i say that?
    All upgrades are done from a clone of the clients site and database on a local server, then uploaded to the client server in a sub directory for them to test prior to go live.
    Personally, i find it just as easy and probably quicker to manually edit the configure.php files as the site is moved from local, to dev, and finally to live. I've done 500+ upgrades in the same way and never once had an issue doing it this way. :)
