Updater deletes config.php while update 10.0.2 to 10.0.3

upgrade

#1

Steps to reproduce

  1. Upgrade oc from version 10.0.2 to 10.03 from command line (via occ upgrade command)
  2. After updater says that update was done correctly
  3. config/config.php disapears
  4. original config.php was lost, so i used config.php from backup of my older oc installation (9.x)

Expected behaviour

Updater should make some changes in database and oc files, and after that i can enter to system normally.

Actual behaviour

If you go to login page, it promts you to enter database name, user and password like it is a fresh install.

Hello,

can you tell me how you tried the upgrade?


#3

Yeah. According documentation - move www folder to www-old, download archive with oc, unpack it to www
copy config.php from www-old to www, after run occ upgrade


#4

There is upgrade log. After that config.php just disapears and if you go to the main cc page it will promt you to enter database data like it is new installation.

# sudo -u apache php occ upgrade -vvv
ownCloud or one of the apps require upgrade - only a limited number of commands are available
You may use your browser or the occ upgrade command to do the upgrade

Your owncloud is sure a magical place with wizards and unicorns. :sweat_smile:

I will investigate and get back to you on this one


#6

Rename your current ownCloud directory, for example owncloud-old.

The path to owncloud should be /var/www/owncloud/

Have you tried to search for the file? with `find / -name "config.php"?

also you should grant your web user the right permissions


#7

Dima,

You will laugh, but finally after more than 8 hours I found problem. I had no more disk space on hdd where owncloud was stored in. That's it.

Anyway thanks a lot for your answers!


#8

Well I am glad that you did it :slight_smile:

I have never seen something like this and not for that reason.
