Name Type Description
Upgrader Module This is in the very early phase of development and is not ready for production use. It only works on linux servers (it makes several system calls, for instance to download and unzip the latest version of cmsms, to backup system files, to dump the mysql database etc). It is also littered with TODO messages. I have however used it to upgrade from very old (0.13, dated 2006) installations to the latest version (1.11.7 at the moment - Aug 2013). The module consults an xml file (hosted at www.maiaweb.co.uk) for information about releases (version, date etc). It then checks the version of cmsms that is installed and suggests upgrading to the next version (ie not necessarily the latest version). The module backs up the system files (to a zip file) and dumps the database (both to the cmsms installation directory), offers links to allow the administrator to download them, then fetches the next version of cmsms from the cmsms website. It then unzips the system files, overwrites the existing installation and redirects to the normal upgrade page. After the upgrade, the module provides a link to restore to the previous version (by removing the existing installation, reinstalling the system files from the back and replacing the upgraded database with the backup). The upgrade from the very old version threw up various problems, such as renamed tags in templates that had to be dealt with manually.
Uploads Module This module provides a means of allowing users to upload files to you. The module allows the user to enter a name and a comment with each upload. The administrator can set a maximum file size and can manage the uploads from the admin interface.
URLwatchdog Module URLwatchdog monitors changes of URLs and then fixes have all been used addresses.
User Directory Module This module is used to display a paged list of users belonging to a group in Front End Users. By default, this includes a first name, last name, email address and photo. Templates can be adjusted to accomodate other properties pretty easily.
UsersGuide Module A fork of OwnersManual. Ability to the site creator to give help and instructions to the users of the admin site. The instructions are in tabs content. Possibility to create as many tabs as needed, to ordered them and give them group's rights. No dependencies.
