  • Hello

    I'm trying to upgrade a site from 2.3.5 to 2.4.3 but have run into a problem.

    I originally tried to make the leap directly but came up against some table errors when the install was trying to finish. So did some reading here and it seemed that 2.3.6 added some bits to the DB. So I then tried to install the traditional version of 2.3.6 downloaded from the ModX site which completed but on logging back into the admin panel it was still on version 2.3.5 and hadn't updated at all.

    I then tried BobRay's upgrade extra (which confirmed I was still on 2.3.5) if I click any of the versions to upgrade to it downloads the modx.zip file but it has no content and the upgrade screen is just blank.

    Any ideas where the problem may lie?
    It's a Linux server running Plesk, PHP 5.4 and MYSQL 5.5.

    Let me know if any more info would be useful and thanks in advance.

      I assume that you have the latest version of UpgradeMODX. I've seen reports of your problem before, but I'm afraid I can't remember what caused them. I think it might have been either a local server issue or a timeout problem from the MODX server.

      [UPDATE]

      See if any of these combinations for the properties of the widget snippet solve the problem:

      &forcePclZip = `1`
      &forceFopen = `0`

      &forcePclZip = `0`
      &forceFopen = `1`

      &forcePclZip = `1`
      &forceFopen = `1`

      • Bob.
        You're a wonder.

        I used

        &forcePclZip = `0`
        &forceFopen = `1`

        and it worked.

        Was that a timeout issue?
        • I'm glad that worked. wink

          It was a problem with cURL -- possibly an issue with SSL_VERIFY_PEER and/or a proxy server or firewall on your end.
