Mageorfix - fix orders status in one lineprojects

The easiest way to fix statuses of your orders.

On one of our projects we have very annoying problem - orders statuses. They can be changes by client's managers or as result of erp import, etc.

Some time we need to do these steps to fix order status:

  1. Connect to the production server
  2. Open mysql console
  3. Fix order by this queries:
UPDATE `sales_flat_order` SET `state`='new', `status`='pending' WHERE entity_id=13134;
UPDATE `sales_flat_order_grid` SET `status`='pending' WHERE entity_id=13134;

For each "bugged" order... But now you can do it with a single command:

php mageorfix.php --order 10000431 --status pending

or (with comment):

php mageorfix.php --order 10000431 --status pending --comment "F*cking bug, again!"

Read docs first!


Git adviceadvice

  1. Before adding any changes, do git pull --all
  2. If your commit has been rejected from branch (eg: remote branch has some commits ahead your), use #1 and then git push [remote_branch_name]
  3. Before merging (read #5) (eg: from "source" branch to "master" branch) do git pull --rebase origin master (from master branch) and then do git push
  4. Never do commits to the master branch, create new branch for your task, eg: [task#]_test_task
  5. Merge branches with --no-ff argument, eg: git merge 117_importantfix --no-ff
  6. When your closed task (or branch isn't needed more), delete it by git branch -d, eg: git branch -d 116_closedtask. This is safe command - if this branch didn't merged yet, you will be warned.
