So the reason for your error is that your system does not have the module "patch" installed.

This can be done via one of the following commands.

sudo apt-get install patch
sudo yum install patch
  • sudo apt-get and sudo yum is a program?

  1. Download the two Patch Update .sh files. Make sure to get the right file for your installed version of Magento. The download location is here: https://www.magentocommerce.com/products/downloads/magento/
  2. Upload to your webserver or development location, into public_html or your webroot folder. So in the same folder as app and skin.
  3. chmod +x *sh. For example:

    chmod +x PATCH_SUPEE-5344_CE_1.8.0.0_v1-2015-02-10-08-10-38.sh 
  4. run the files ./name.sh

  5. Remove the .sh files

  6. Commit the files to version control and deploy (if needed working locally)
  7. ???
  8. Profit

  • chmod +x is a SSH/Command line command to change the permissions of the file. So that you may run the file as a executable. Commented Apr 21, 2015 at 10:10
  • ok..but where is chmod +x? how to find it..(sorry,my english is not good so if have pic show to me is good)

  • You need to upload the patch files to your webroot and then SSH to that location and run from there. Or apply locally and deploy your shop. Commented Apr 21, 2015 at 10:16
  • i already upload the PATCH_SUPEE-5344_CE_1.8.0.0_v1-2015-02-10-08-10-38.sh patch files to my webroot . but i dont understand where is SSH

Please refer the below mentioned URL for installing a patch for MAGENTO COMMUNITY EDITION. installing a patch guide. In this guide are very useful.


It requires you to do put some linux code commands under PUTTY or SHH after you upload the files to the correct folder in FTP.

It's truly more than a bit complicated for new site administrators.

  • Well I think there was enough explanation in comments answer above yours. The question-giver didn't had any way to access his server by ssh. The explanation how to do it without ssh has been given.
