  • 5.5.5 to 5.5.6 - upgrade losing will to live

    Hello Fellas

    After a very long evening upgrading everything which used to be a slam dunk in V4 I am now hitting Internal 500 errors so I cannot even access the upgrade scripts

    I am either over tired and cant see the issue or it is really an error.

    Set new .htaccess for https
    Fill in usual details in config.php
    Upload new 5.5.6 and overwrite files
    https://www.hillmanimp.org/core/install/upgrade.php and I get 500 internal sever error



    Thanks In Advance

    Are you running PHP 7.1 or higher and SQL 5.6 or higher?
    Have you edited both config.php files?
    Is your .htaccess file updated and renamed?

      Forums were fin on 5.5.5 had to go sleep though so I left the restore running so now forums are back as 5.5.5

      Yes, renamed to .htaccess and uncommented

      Code:
      RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
      RewriteRule .* https://%{SERVER_NAME}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
      Renamed config to config.php

      In core only rename file config.php.new to config.php and apply usual edits

      Thats 5.5.6 prepped, upload files (overwrite all) then run /core/install/upgrade.php

      Anything I forgot ?

      Thanks In Advance

        We need the full scenario here. If you are already on 5.5.5, why are you changing the .htaccess and config files?

          Sorry for the piece meal information, my eyes were literally closing last night

          I was prepping the supplied /.htaccess and config files within the upload folder in the 5.5.6 download ready to upload over 5.5.5

          The old files have been uploaded back in place and it is working so I will go back over the same path again in case the upload failed although nothing is in the failed transfer queue in Filezilla

          Thanks In Advance

            OK, now I have a list of startup warnings which I assume is the files no longer needed so will continue with the update

                  Just reran the upgrade script and it was fine

                  Diagnostics showed one file in template so I just reverted it and will see what that was.

                  Error log was removed

                  Now just need to get the md5 to stay non-writable, no many how many time i chmod in Filezilla it remains write on next refresh.

                  John

                      We would need a support ticket with access to the server to understand what is happening.

                        Wayne, all sorted and it was a server issue, seemingly bluehosts has an issue with too many files being CHMOD to 777 which ended up I had to give up using filezilla and use the hosts file manager to set permissions properly as FZ was not setting them correctly

                        That was same issue with the md5# file warning, was setting it in Filezilla to not writabel and every time I got same warning in the update system, went back and write permissions were back.

                        Logged into host, used there file manager, set it read only, deed done. I sent them a support ticket as to why such a basic command was not being applied but no asnwer as yet.

                        At least now i know why and I am not losing my mind ! but it was not what I was expecting. I suspect that could also have ben come of the CSS loading issues I had on the change to https.

                        I tried using the alternative ftp client WinSCP and that seems to work, one to keep in mind, BH and FZ not always play nice :-(
