Nextcloud 15.0.0 RC 2 is out


#1

Hey,

we just published 15.0.0 RC 2 on our download servers. This version is also published on the beta channel for 14 and 15. Feel free to report bugs.

The changelog between RC 1 and RC 2 can be found just below.

:robot: Happy testing! :rocket:


Ist heute nicht der RC2 Relese von Nextcloud 15?
#2

The web updater hangs and does nothing after pressing the “Start update” button.


#3

This is solved with this version, but unfortunately only from upgrades afterwards. This you need to run the updater from the updater/ folder: php updater.phar. This does the same as the web based updater.


#4

Thank you, that worked. I had to remove that .rnd file, though


#5

How do you run that in a console window? My host is FreeNAS based.

iocage console nextcloud… I just don’t know how to execute it from there.

Thanks in advance!


#6

Can you start a console at all? The commands would be:

cd /var/www/nextcloud
sudo -u www-data php updater.phar

You must change this commands for your actual path and the owner of that directory.


#7

I went to the folder the file is in, ran the command, but no hint of activity shows. What gives?

sudo -u root php updater.phar

#8

There must be some error messages. The updater.phar is in the updater subdirectory, so you have to cd there to make it run.


#9

I went to the subdirectory it’s in, ran the command above… but there was no reaction. I ran locate *.rnd to look for a file that caused you issues, but locate came up empty.


#10

If you can run the command, and there is no reaction, there is something wrong. Does it show a command prompt again? What does

ls -l

show in the nextcloud directory?


#11

[root@nextcloud ~]# cd /usr/local/www/apache24/data/nextcloud/updater/ [root@nextcloud /usr/local/www/apache24/data/nextcloud/updater]# sudo -u root php updater.phar [root@nextcloud /usr/local/www/apache24/data/nextcloud/updater]#

Navigate, run, result.

ls -l:

[root@nextcloud /usr/local/www/apache24/data/nextcloud/updater]# ls -l total 251 -rw-r--r-- 1 www www 62871 Nov 16 22:07 index.php -rw-r--r-- 1 www www 598970 Nov 16 22:07 updater.phar


#12

Running the command as root is wrong. You need to run it as the user that runs the web server, and this user should own the directory. That’s why I asked for the result of

ls -l


#13

Pretty sure that root shows there cause of ssh root@IP


#14

No. Just when you log in as root that does not mean that folder is owned by root, and it should not. Try to check what user is used by the web server (apache?) on your system. On a Debian system that would be www-data. Because I do not know your system, I cannot tell.

You might run:

ps aux | grep apache

to get a list of the apache processes. In the left row, you see the user.

Is it even being allowed to run? (r= read, w= write, x= execute?)


#17

So the directory is owned by user www. Thats fine, check if the directory

/usr/local/www/apache24/data/nextcloud

is also owned by www. Then try (in the updater directory):

sudo -u www php updater.phar

Any results?


#18

updater.phar information is in my last post. Nextcloud folder:

That looks good. Now try the update command with the www user.
