Plone hotfix – how to install it for those who might be nervous to do so

If you are anything like me, you might be nervous about installing the recent plone hotfix in case you either break something or are under the impression it involves some unix command line foo. Don’t worry, it is much simpler than that – the hotfix comes in the form of a product – download it, unzip it (well actually untar/ gunzip it) ,and drop it in your products directory and restart zope. Of course you will need access to your products directory, and the ability to restart zope to do this. If you haven’t then it is probably safe to assume that it isn’t your responsibility, so go and nudge whoever it is that deals with that stuff for you 😉
