How to "remember" changes (in MOD's)

Postby Stinus on Sun May 06, 2007 7:05 pm

Hi
In my forum i have install some MOD's. Before i install MOD's i take backup of db and the files. But i don't know after 5 - 6 month what i have change in the forum

The question is:
Is there a program or a simple way to "remember" what and when, changes is been installed (MOD's installing lines, files and time). So it is easy to se what i have change, so i don't have to open each MOD's instruktions to look after.

Or what do you do to "remember" changes in forum or other website?
Best regards

If you use EasyMOD to install all of your MODs (not that I recommend that) it will keep track of all the changes. Otherwise I recommend making a new hidden forum on your site and making a new thread for each MOD you install along with a link to that MOD. That way you have a central place to keep track of MODs.

Hi
I don't use EasyMOD. Thaks for the god idea to making a hidden forum, and new thread for each MOD. That is a very easy to "remember" MOD's.
Best regards

Hi,

It is also a good ideal to keep backups every time you install a mod. You can easily revert back if it doesn't work.

Hello,

Here's one I've used in the past that fits right into your admin control panel.
There is also another one that is quite similar.

Hi
Thanks for the reply.
I have installed the last link (Hacks List) for about 5 month ago, but i have not seen the first link before.
Best regards
