Update 4.0.5 doesn't work...

Post by ThiloS » Tue Dec 14, 2021 1:47 pm

Hi there,

i tried to update three different Joomla 4.0.4 installaltions (on three different servers).

I have a few warnings - but all installations 'til today worked fine anyway.

I'll attach three images.
It just hangs at the screen "Update in progress" --- then it just wont do anything.

No difference between direct update or with uploading an update-file...

Anyone else those problems?

Extensions in use:
JCH, JCE, EASY JOOMLA BACKUP,

One of the three servers: (the other two are different)
Plesk 18.0.40
PHP 7.4.26

Session Path Writable: No. Must be yes, ask your host to sort it out. I am not aware of your template,is it J4 ready? I disable JCHoptimize whenever I am editing my website and then re enable it when finished.
Also /var/www/vhosts/ghs-heilbronn.de/:/tmp/ usually this is empty??

Thanks for the hints!

So I set the upload-tmp dir. I set the session-save_path. And i put JCH in development mode....

Still - the Update won't start...
The package is downloaded inside the tmp directory (can see it via FTP) but then nothing more happens...

Here the new FPA:

Max upload and max post size are too small set both to at least 64Mb

All right it was this issue:

https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/issues/35920

I always used the small Update-Packages (since i have to update many JoomlaWebsites - so it seemed to me faster, safer and easy.)

So far as i understand it - everyone who used those small Update-Packages needs to update the "media" directory manually.

So did i - and the update works well!

Means - you have to do the following:

Download the package 4.0.4
https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla ... format=zip

Extract the directory "media".

Upload it into your existing installation.

And THEN start the Joomla Update. Everything should be fine.

Excuse my ignorance, The media, refering to this quote is actually referring to the downloaded file right? And Upload to /tmp folder.
I tried it and it did not work. However, Joomla downloads the file and places it into the /tmp folder but nothing else happens and the update progress bar just stays there.

I have done everything, I even installed a copy to another host, but no solution.

Any other ideas.

Thank you

Extract the "media" folder from the zip-file.

OVERWRITE the media folder of your live-website with the extracted folder - and the start the regular update.

Have a look at this item about update failing after 4.0.4:

https://docs.joomla.org/J4.x:Assorted_I ... g_to_4.0.4

and tell us if it helps.
