07-30-2014, 04:02 AM
The purpose of this set of bash scripts is to help automate setting permissions on osCommerce shops. And in addition, provide a convenient way to install batch of updates from a zip file.

Folks that live in rural areas that rely on slow or high latency internet connections may find the zip installer a convenient way to update their shop. Instead of all the overhead of single file checks and uploads, you can upload a zip package then install it with proper permission settings using these scripts. If you prefer your shop locked down, the script will unlock it, install the update, and lock it down again. It's fast and convenient.

There are three sets of bash scripts included. Two sets are developed for a server admin to be run from a root account. The other set is designed to be used by a shop owner from an account level shell login.

From the shop owners perspective, the scripts where designed to take the guess work out of setting the permissions on an osCommerce shop. From the server admin's perspective, it's a fast convenient way to script updates and settings changes on one or multiple shops on a server.

The "Extended" permissions level conforms with the osCommerce 2.3 Security Directory Permissions check.
Quickly and easily set 3 different file and directory permissions levels on your shop.
Quickly and easily lock and unlock the configure.php files.
Easy to customize to fit your specific shop's needs.
Conveniently install shop updates from an uploaded zip file and follow-up with setting the correct permissions.

This is a FULL PACKAGE compatible with both osCommerce 2.2ms2 and 2.3.x
