I'm new to applying Magento Security Patch. So here

Initially I have applied PATCH_SUPEE-6482_EE_1.13.1.0_v2.sh patch for which I'm getting applied.patches.list file in app/etc/.

And the applied.patches.list looks like now as below

2015-11-05 12:06:05 UTC | SUPEE-6482_EE_1.13.1.0 | EE_1.13.1.0 | v2 | 7e38036f94f250514fcc11d066a43c9bdb6a3723 | Tue Jul 28 14:29:35 2015 +0300 | v1.13.1.0..HEAD
        patching file app/code/core/Enterprise/PageCache/Model/Processor.php
        patching file app/code/core/Mage/Api/Model/Server/Adapter/Soap.php
        patching file app/code/core/Mage/Catalog/Model/Product/Api/V2.php
        patching file app/code/core/Mage/Core/Controller/Request/Http.php
        patching file app/design/frontend/base/default/template/page/js/cookie.phtml
        patching file app/design/frontend/enterprise/default/template/giftregistry/search/form.phtml

1) Now I have downloaded and paste it on local magento root folder.

i.e., magento/PATCH_SUPEE-6788_EE_1.13.1.0_v1.sh

2) and I have created patch.php file written below coding.


3) In my browser I have entered

Automatically Command Prompt opened and some queries executed and eascape it.

But in applied.patches.list I am not getting SUPEE-6788 Result as shown above result. So it is success or Failure I don't know how Can i find?

Could you please let me know how can I Know?

As mentioned in the comments earlier: You can only be sure the patch was applied successfully if

  1. the shellscript returns a success message and
  2. there is an entry listing all the patched files in app/etc/applied.patches.list

If this is not the case, you can manually compare the changes applied via the patch which are included in the shellscript and check if they were applied.

Depending on the size of the patch (especially for SUPEE-6788) this will be a lot of work. But if you find out some files weren't patched you can be sure that it wasn't successful.

The best way to apply patches in the future is to set up a test-system where you have access to the files via shell and apply the shellscript. You should consider setting up an automatic workflow to update the files in your live-system.
