Help testing the 9.0.54RC1 and 10.0.1RC1


#1

We just released the 9.0.54RC1 as well as 10.0.1RC1. These minor releases do fix a lot of issues and add some small enhancements (find the changelog at the end of this post)
To make sure everything works as expected also in your environment, we’d greatly appreciate your help to test it.

While we expect the release to not eat any data and be stable, the usual disclaimer is still valid: Make sure to have backups before updating!

… once you have done that, grab the code from https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases/nextcloud-9.0.54RC1.tar.bz2 or https://download.nextcloud.com/server/prereleases/nextcloud-10.0.1RC1.tar.bz2 and simply update your instance as usual by removing all old files and putting the new files in place.

If you encounter any issues, please leave a comment here and file an issue at https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues (or the appropriate repository of the component)

Thanks to all the awesome people that contributed in some way to this release! Be it with coding, translating, helping people, filing issues, etc.

Keep rocking :rocket:

i would test the 10.0.1RC1 is it with the new updater script possible now?


#4

Possible yes, but not officially supported. I can post an tutorial later today, if you want :slight_smile:


Two nextclouds not playing well with each other
#5

please do so. for me it has the pro that it will download the file with the server capacity.
an upload over my own dsl will take hours.


#6

Keep in mind: this in not officially supported - @LukasReschke and I build this. It is for testing purposes only. (beside that we have run in already successfully on multiple servers - but we want to be 100% sure that it doesn’t cause issues in production instances first before saying it is officially supported).

    1. configure updater in config.php:
  'updater.server.url' => 'https://updates.nextcloud.com/updater_server/',
  'updater.release.channel' => 'beta',
    1. put the new updater script in place (keep in mind to grant the web server user write permissions to this file - otherwise the updater will tell you this ;)):
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nextcloud/updater/master/index.php -O updater/index.php
  • 2a) restart the webserver now (crucial!!!)we have seen many reports that even if the file was replaced still the old updater was in use - I suspect that the opcache still has held the old code and didn’t replaced it with the new one
    1. go to the admin page and change the channel to beta there too (yes we did this in the config, but this needs to be done here too, because those are sadly two different settings)
    1. then (after the next cron.php run) the update should be visible and a button “Open Updater” should be available - you can click this (but be sure, that you put the before downloaded file in place - see step 2))

See Test our new work-in-progress upgrader script for the updater script.

change the permission for the file doesn’t help.


#10

i have did the update yesterday manually without problems.

@MorrisJobke did you change something on the code signing? because i have changed the .htaccess in the root folder and an additional file .php.ini and i get no warning anymore.


#11

Not that I’m aware of, but the check is only done during the upgrade. If you changed the files afterwards it still shows the old result. If you want to run the check again use the occ command and check the results then. They should appear as changed.


#12

To see if the correct updater was loaded check out the pictures in https://github.com/nextcloud/updater/issues/39#issuecomment-250399443

The release is out. Thanks all for testing.


#13

I downloaded the updater script and changed the config but it looks like this when opening the updater:

There is nothing greyed out and clicking on “continue update” does only hide that button, but does nothing apart from that. I don’t see any errors in the log or so. Anybody knows what is wrong?

Edit: I also tried the beta update channel (but this changed nothing, screen looks the same with ‘channel: “beta”’ instead)


#14

Remove the file .step inside data/updater-INSTANCEID/ - then the update should work. This is fixed in the currently released version, because there this file is removed during the maintenance repair steps (which also means that the code was properly replaced and the step file isn’t needed anymore.


#15

The final version have been released, so we can close this discussion. If you experience problems with any of the features, please open a new topic.
