Upgrade to 3.10.1 from 3.10.0 Question

Post by FuzMic » Fri Sep 03, 2021 10:17 am

Hi guys
I upgrade 2 websites from 3.10.0, just straight. One in case there was a list of bells & whistle. Why?
If I upgrade using a upgrade zip in this 3rd case, no questions ask & done ok. Any insight?

Sounds like the Joomla Update component is set to "Joomla Next" and the site is running the update (to J4) pre-check. It's been happening with some older/longer standing sites.

Check the update channel on Joomla Update (in Global Config) after the update to 3.10.1 and:
1. set it to "Test" and click "Save"
2. Set it to "Default" then "Save and Close"

All will be well :)

John

With your reply I now understand the significance of Global Config > Update Channel in relationship to "Joomla Next" in migrating to Jm 4.x from 3.x.

After trying to play with the v3 to v4 upgrade, my conclusion is better to a fresh full v4 installation. My reasons are there too many extensions need to be checked or removed. By starting from fresh i can get extension or template that is ready for v4. Perhaps waiting a while will be better to allow developers to catch up. Appreciate your views on my conclusion.

If we are staying with 3.x, eg upgrading from 3.10.0 to 3.10.1, we can ignore all the pre checking warnings & up date; pre check warning really apply only to v4.x. Setting Update Channel to default there will be no pre checking warnings.
