Summary08426: Unable to update an existing template by upload without update survey settings
DescriptionIf you try to update an existing template by upload : you have an alert : this template already exist.
Then you have to delete template, upload again the template. But then : survey using this template use default template (even if you don't touch the survey)
Steps To ReproduceCreate a new template,
Export in a zip file
Set a survey with this new template
Delete the template
Reupload the template zip file
Look at survey ....
Additional InformationThink we don't have to touch the survey template when eleting. Because template folder is set to default template (if template dir don't exist) when
- Start the survey
- Update survey settings.

We can remove this line:
$surveys = Survey::model()->findAllByAttributes(array('template' => $templatename));
  foreach ($surveys as $s)
    $s->template = Yii::app()->getConfig('defaulttemplate');
TagsNo tags attached.

We need to have an option during import that can be checked be the user that allows to overwrite an existing template - OR ask the user if the template already exists if it should be overwritten.

Yes maybe:
Remove existing template (remove not used files)
OR Replace existing files (leave not used files)
OR do nothing

Ps removing the line don't hurt and is quick : because template are set to default if not exist, then updated only when user update survey settings.

If downloaded from LimeStore, the name is guaranteed to be unique, so updating is risk free.

This is how plugins work when uploading a zip file, btw.

Name collision should be pretty low risk anyway, no?

Have an option seems the best (in my opinion)
