could you help me to apply a patch about ssl connection:
as I'm trying to use SSL for authenticated users (Securing Drupal for authenticated users, http://drupal.org/node/53567 )...
I'm interested in the following patch: session.cookie_secure: SSL cookie gets over-written by non-SSL cookie ( http://drupal.org/node/170310 )
1 - I see that it was initially for drupal 5, may I apply to drupal 6?
in general? how can I understand when a patch is suitable for a certain version of drupal?
2 - how to actually apply it? there are several files, which ones have I to apply? in which order? only the last one or the different versions of the patch?
3 - is there a guide to understand the mechanism of the patches? is it possible to manually copy and paste the code in the target file?
I hope to get the get the general concepts about applying patches
thank you very much
