I just updated my Sendy installation to the latest version and inadvertently clobbered my config.php file in the process. I perform nightly backups, so this wasn't really a problem for me, but it's almost certainly going to be a problem for someone else (or likely has already).
Many web applications do not ship a config file, instead shipping something like config-example.php which can be filled out and renamed to config.php for use. This will allow the copying over of new versions without having to worry about overwriting an important file.
(Being able to update straight from a Subversion or Git repository would be even better!)
Thanks for your suggestion Kenn. I laid it out clearly in 'How to upgrade?' in the Get Updated page though I completely understand sometimes we can miss things out. :) I am thinking of an auto-update or one click update feature, something along the lines which will make updating easier in future.
It has been a year. Auto update function is still not available?
I really appreciate you guys making the update quite frequently (I'm just a 3 month old user, and here are 2 new version release within 3 months). It is quite a tedious process to update sendy unless there it has auto update!
Automatic updates would be great! Or even just a version that does not include the .htaccess, config.php or uploads folders for folks upgrading so that they don't have to be remembered to be deleted.
WordPress does something similar. By default the wp_config.php is called wp_config_sample.php in the zip you download to install or upgrade.
