During the update of an extension, the order of extensions is changing in LocalConfiguration.php.

Potentially this behaviour could break the site in production.

Example :

We've extended News extension, and after it's update from TER, News appears after news_custom_extension in LocalConfiguration.php

So, ext_tables.php and ext_localconf.php, which should override some News parameters are overrided itself.

In my case, I'd to manually reorder extension array after the extension update.

I suppose, the update should keep the order of installed extensions.

not easy to solve: upgrade just deinstalls, fetchs and installs again.

Possible solutions : or to keep in the session the good order of previously installed extensions and to do reordering at the end of update procedure.
Or not to touch the variable of installed extensions at all.

  • Is Regression set to No

Just a note on this. For 6.2 you should define a dependency on news. The package manager will properly load news before your extension.
