I've got a bug_fix.patch apply for Joomla version 1.5.22 and i'm attempting to put it on. How do you start doing this type of factor?

One article I just read mentions dumping it in to the root directory of my Joomla site... But exactly how could it be acquired by Joomla? It does not make much sense in my experience.

Thanks ahead of time.

If you're attempting to change your Joomla version (so it seems like you're) then you definitely should download something similar to "1.5.22 to at least one.5.23 Upgrade Package" from http://www.joomla.org/download.html. After this you unzip it and upload all of the files.

The bug_fix.patch file is perfect for designers focusing on the Joomla project, see http://jungels.net/articles/diff-patch-ten-minutes.html to have an example.
