In the WIKI about this subject, you mention that the files are MERGED instead of replaced in Windows. I am using Filezilla to upload the files to my website, I think it just replaces the files, or not??
What about a custom event I have put in, how do I (or webtrees) go about that issue?

Individual file content is not 'merged', nor does the WIKI indicate that. The comment is made since on a Mac, the entire folder would be replaced rather than only the duplicate name files within, as is the case with Windoze. So technically, the folder content is 'merged' with new files replacing old ones called the same, but old ones named differently (or not changed), remaining.

The best example would be the DATA folder and the config.ini.php file. On a MAC, you would risk overwriting the existing config.ini.php file with nothing if your upload contained a DATA folder.

O.K. Stephen, got the idea. Means I don't have to worry about a thing uploading the latest version. I certainly hope the dutch translation is much improved, if not, I will have to do some more work ont it once more, if I have some spare time that is.
Regards, Wim.

You can always visit the translation page on LaunchPad and check. It appears that there are many strings remaining and no one has done any work since Dec 2010:

Hi there,

I had some problems getting the latest release installe, Filezilla gave me a lot of fatal errors, telling me that I had to delete the files on my server and then download them. I did that, replaced the data en media folders with the old ones, and everything worked just fine.
I certainly like the new interactive trree!! Wish the descendant chart was fashioned in the same way though.
I noted a problem, a friend of mine forgot ot log out and was logged in for three days. I thought WT would kick someone out after a certain timelimit?
Translations are much improved, I just have to do some more on it.

Thanks for everything, regards, Wim.
