PHP Auto Update Script is a customizable PHP self-update system to automatically install and update PHP scripts and databases in background.
Less than a year ago, we released Auto PHP Licenser, which is now used to protect thousands of PHP scripts. Today, we introduce PHP Auto Update Script – your one-stop solution to add version check features into your applications, create online installers, upgrade and downgrade current installations, setup databases, and more.
As a result of extreme competition between script authors, making a revolutionary product is only half a battle now. The other half is continuous updates and improvements. But… Gone are the days when manual download and installation of every upgrade package was considered normal. Today, authors update their products every few months. Hence, automated updates are must. And this is exactly where PHP Auto Update Script comes at your service.
Add version check features into your applications.
If your clients are old-school users who prefer to install new versions manually, PHP self-update system can notify them once updates are available. Then, user can decide if he wants to skip or apply this update. Needless to say, you can customize every single aspect of versioning mechanism. For example, you can configure PHP Auto Update Script to check for new version every time user starts your script. Or do it every X days. Or disable automated lookup at all and allow user to manually check for new version anytime he wants. You are in charge.
Create online installers.
Don’t let the name fool you, because it’s not just about updates. Use PHP auto update system to create online installers that:
- automatically download and install the latest version of your script
- automatically select and download a compatible version of your product depending on user’s machine specifications
- allow user to select a particular version he wants to download and install
With that in mind, author doesn’t need to distribute separate archives for each version anymore. Instead, he can use the same file for all versions and PHP self-update system will do the rest. Not only it greatly reduces the size of installation package, but also ensures user always installs the latest version, no matter how old his installation archive is.
Upgrade and downgrade current installations.
Sometimes, new versions add more bugs than they fix and a rollback to previous release is the only option. If developer enables this feature, user can automatically downgrade his installation at any time. When everything gets fixed, PHP auto update system can download and install the latest version again.
