Hey guys, not been doing much on this recently and Christmas has really hit us hard, in a good way of course.
I have no idea of how the core software works in conjunction with extensions and themes, so just wanted to know if it’s safe to leave auto updates on like this? ie. Is there any chance that they may break functionality of extensions.
Seems safer to only update when we’ve checked everything on a test server to me, is that right?
I got this auto update today and i’m pretty new to this Magento thing to. A few of my tools went missing and i lost around 10 orders while processing for no obvious reason which appeared back later. Then some of my tools went missing then came back. All this happening while 2 developers were waiting to install 2 different new extensions and know one could get into the configuration menu in the admin pannel. Simple servers didn’t seem to know anything about this so i got a Freelancer to sort the problem for £42 and it took him 30 mins. The error i got was
Fatal error: Class ‘Mage_Googlecheckout_Helper_Data’ not found in /***/***/public_html/app/Mage.php on line 547
I’m none the wiser as to what actually happened however i will be turning off auto updates when i have a minute to work out how. The scary thing is i didn’t know or expect this to happen so i consider myself lucky.
The good thing is you can always find someone to help, i posted the job and had it fixed in under an hour and i don’t have a clue
This just got me thinking, back in the starting guides we leave auto updating on, but actually this might be a bad idea as @chris mcc found out.
You can turn the auto updates off, but going to your cpanel, clicking on installatron, selecting your installation and turning the auto updates off.
Hope that helps!
I also had the same problem, Fatal error: Class ‘Mage_Googlecheckout_Helper_Data’ not found in /***/***/public_html/app/Mage.php on line 547
But i fixed it no problem in 5 mins thanks to Matt
I managed to find Matt´s step by step video on Understandinge, youtube channel.
which is easy to follow providing you know how to use FileZilla. if not, watch the guide here first https://understandinge.com/guides/setup/su-010/
In the video from Matt he opens up the directoies App/code/mage/googlecheckout/etc
But in my directories magento community version 1.8.1 i found i had to open App/code/core/mage/googlecheckout/etc
so core was an extra directory to open to get to mage and then the rest is the same.
