Update fails with: "0 Cannot write to log file."

Post by jseeee » Tue Jun 30, 2020 10:32 am

Hello,

I'm trying to update version 3.6.2 to 3.6.5. When I choose Live-Update mode, I get an error:
"0 Cannot write to log file."

I tried also the manual option tab, where I have to upload a .zip file. This doesn't work, too. But I don't get an error. After some seconds of loading, it shows me the start panel.

I searching 4 hours throw the web, but now I stuck.

I already check the system information -> directory rights, where all entries are writeable.

Is there anyone, who can help me? :(

I also changed in configuration.php the log and tmp path. Before I did this, both are marked as not writeable in the system information.

paths:
../logs
../tmp

The server is running ISPconfig.
