Hello,

I have posted this on the bugs / feature requests area (http://bugzilla.cpanel.net/show_bug.cgi?id=5588) but thought I would get some support for it here.

Basically, when you unzip a zip file and it contains files that already on the server, it just skips them (replace index.php? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename: NULL
(assuming [N]one)).

It should not do this, it should ask you what you want to do (Yes, Yes to All,
No, No to All).

The reason I would fine this feature handy is when upgrading software such as Invision Power Board (I have like 10 sites that use it), I have to find the password, upload, enable SSH access for the account, unzip via there.

If it asked these, I could simply login using the root password to the account, upload via file manager, unzip via file manager and that would be that.

Hope I can get your support on this guys.

Bestg Regards,
Craig Brass

To each his own I guess, but IMO you really should unpack the file into its own directory first then cut the old files and move to another directory, then cut and move the new files in and do your upgrades. This way you have a backup of the files on the server to go back to just in case.

That's not to say the option shouldn't be added to make your own choice when unpacking. Choice is good. ;)

I know thats how it always has worked......I am suggesting a change in the way it works. It would be nice to give the user an OPTION of what they want to do rather than just making the assumtion they just want to overwrite.
