So earlier today I was looking for my
update/cron.php folder and I ended up finding that:
If you cloned the GitHub repository you don’t have an update directory and errors result if you run magento setup:cron:run. These cron jobs work in the Web Setup Wizard, which contributing developers cannot use for installing or updating the Magento application or components.
So my questions are simple:
- is there a technical reason why people installing M2 from GitHub can't use the Web Setup Wizard ?
- why didn't Magento team include the
updatefolder in the GitHub repo ?
- is there any way one can switch to the Web Setup Wizard after installing via GitHub ?
Regarding my last point, Peter O'Callaghan suggested:
Maybe grab the
updatefolder from the meta package but that might now work without the composer dependencies of the core packages.
I don't see the point of limiting users of using one or another way of updating.
