Create and Apply a Patch to a Drupal Module

From a terminal...

Patching a Single File

Navigate to your module's directory that contains the changes you have made:

cd /var/www/my-website/sites/all/modules/custom/my_module

Create the patch file by running a diff on your OTHER module file and comparing it to your updated module file:

diff -ruN /var/www/my-OTHER-website/sites/all/modules/custom/my_module/my_module.module my_module.module > my_module.module.patch

Copy the patch file to the same directory as the file that needs to be patched:
