Hotfix Manager

Installation

The HotfixManager is installed as web application under the �web� directory of your SDL Tridion 2011 Installation. In the download package there is a �HotfixManager� folder which contains all the files needed to create the web application. After copying the �HotfixManager� folder to your �web� directory you have to convert this folder to an application in IIS.

Afterwards you have to add a custompage in the Tridion CME and link it to the �HotfixManager.aspx� file in the installed folder.

Configuration

The only value to configure is the folder in which the hotfixes and the hotfix list file are stored. This path has to be a relative path from the web application root folder. Initially the configuration looks as follows:

<configuration>
  <appSettings>
    <addkey="folder_hotfixes" value="~\hotfixes"/>
  </appSettings>

Usage

Steps to upload a hotfix:
