Known issues

  • the updater does not remove the .step file in /path/to/data/updater-$INSTANCEID/ after a successful upgrade. Next time you like to upgrade you notice that all to-dos are ticked, alas nothing really happens. Manually deleting this .step file solves the issue for now, and we are looking into solving this for 25, of course.

Should:

);

be the unhashed secret from config.php ?

remove the .step file in the data/update folder as outlined in the Known Issue above.

Removing the .step file does not help. I too get this

To login you need to provide the unhashed value of “updater.secret” in your config file…

message.

I do not have the data/update folder, so no .step file but still the Authentication message.

You have an updater.secret value in the config file. If you navigate
away from the update page before it is finished it wont recognize you.

So fetch the config file and use the updater.secret value to login.
After that you will be able to run the web based updater again

I created the unhashed value of “updater.secret” as the short script suggested. Next I put the new updater.secret in to the config.php. That worked.

In my config was already a “updater.secret” password, but could not remember the plaintext value. Then I also created a new hash password using the recommended php command and entered it there. Then entered the plaintext value in the updater and now it worked.

What I ended up doing to get the upgrade to proceed was renaming the data/updater-XXXXXXXX directory to something else, then trying the upgrade again. Once I saw that the upgrade was proceeding, I deleted the renamed directory.

Now if I could just figure out how to fix the warnings for the .well-known rewrites. I have the rewrites configured, but it has been complaining about them anyway.
