Updating Joomla & 3rd party extensions

Post by john123 » November 10th, 2017, 9:26 am

Hello,

can you give some information when time comes for Joomla & 3d party extensions?
How are all these handled in a multi-site setup with mighty-sites?
Does the multi-sites help in reducing the time needed for maintenance of 10-20 slaves, by managing this only from the master site?
How are the database schemas updates handled across the slaves - when they are using some tables on their own?
Are there any known issues?

If all sites use same tables, it's only required to update extensions on master site.

If each site uses own tables, an extension is updated on each site. There can be issues with updating an extension if it doesn't use native Joomla installer.

But if Joomla create a new table, or alter some column... how Mighty Sites send this modification to "slave sites"?

It does not, all changes should be manually applied on all slave sites, via native Joomla database schema checker.


Any serious change should be applied manually if it stops normal operating of Joomla.
