Magento Patch 9767 v2
One month after first confirmed issues Patch SUPEE-9767 v2 is now out. If you need it, you first have to revert its old version. I never reverted any patch, so see how to revert and install this new patch. I also give you details on things you need to know about this new security patch patch (yes, patch of patch).
As always, it is a good idea to use a version control like git, install and test a new patch on a development system. For this you need both version of SUPEE-9767 copied into your root folder.
Reverting a patch
You had already installed old patch version an tested it. Now you need to revert it. This works with:
sh patchfile -R
Install new patch
You may now install new version 2 of this patch with the same procedure as always. The complete procedure looks like this (if everything works as expected):
As far as we can test, there are no new issues. All issues from previous patch should be solved. If you activate form key validation for checkout, it is now possible to create new customer accounts. One main problem remains, third party payment modules may have problems with new form keys. It is important to test every payment method and to update to newest payment module.
A month after first opened issues, this important patch bugfix is out. You need to install it immediately to fix previous patch bugs. If not installed yet, please install only v2 of this patch. It is again an important security patch, so there is no reason not to install it. As always, is it a good idea to use version control and automatic deployment to development and live systems.
Do you encountered new issues? Did you have problems installing this current patch?
