Hi all

This is how I deployed the diff file on my system:

copy the diff file (using FTP) to your magento directory

I used Bitvise Tunnelier (www.bitvise.com/tunnelier) to open a terminal console window to allow you to use linux commands on the server. Any SSH client would be OK
(to be able to use this with my hoster, I had to ask them to enable SSH access)

In the console type:

cd public_html/shop

this should be the directory where magento is installed (in my case it is “shop")

use this command to appy the diff file:

patch -p0 -b -z bak <filename.diff

where filename is the name of the diff file.
p0 means use the file paths as specified in the file
-b means make a backup of each changed file
-z bak means name the backed up file with “bak” appended

would be best to use a different backup suffix each time you do an upgrade

full info on the patch command:

Note that you then have to check any file you customised (themes etc to see if they need updating)
