While trying to upgrade to 9.0.18 from 9.0.17 the following occured. Using the upgrader I had pasted the URL

http://ocportal.com/upgrades/9.0.17-9.0.18.tar

into the box and pressed the proceed button only to get this message:


ocPortal upgrader

This is the ocPortal upgrade tool. This tool is a part of ocPortal, but it is intentionally kept lightweight to keep it working even if ocPortal is partly broken.


Critical error – bailing out

Unknown HTTP status received for http://davidlfriend.com/.

Integrity check

If you think this problem could be due to corruption caused by a failed upgrade (e.g. time-out during extraction), check the following integrity check…

These files are actually missing and need uploading (you can find them in the manual installer ZIP for the version you're running):

  • uploads/auto_thumbs/.htaccess
  • uploads/auto_thumbs/index.html

Details here are intended only for the website/system-administrator, not for regular website users.
» If you are a regular website user, please let the website staff deal with this problem.

Depending on the error, and only if the website installation finished, you may need to edit the installation options (the info.php file).

ocProducts maintains full documentation for all procedures and tools. These may be found on the ocPortal website. If you are unable to easily solve this problem, we may be contacted from our website and can help resolve it for you.


ocPortal is a CMS for building websites, developed by ocProducts.

Please see Jason's comment in the news topic regarding a hot fix.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Did you follow the proper upgrade process? If you manually extracted the files from the TAR, it will put back files from addons you don't have, which can give errors like that due to resulting partial addon installs.

I know I have installed hotfixes in the past but I cannot recall the procedure. Help anyone?

Installing hotfixes is a manual process. You should start by downloading the hotfix .tar archive files to your computer from the bug tracker pages. Be sure to only download the hotfixes that you really need and be sure they are not hotfixes from previous versions of ocPortal that are already incorporated into the version you currently running. You can see the hotfixes available for each version of ocPortal on the Bugs Database page. Once downloaded, look at the names of the .tar files and take note of the date and time that is part of the file name. It's important to work in chronological order from oldest hotfix to newest hotfix. Don't use the hotfix number for this reference, since the hotfixes aren't necessarily provided in the order the bugs are reported in the tracker. And don't use the order the hotfixes are listed in the Bugs Database page, since those are listed alphabetically by title. I recommend just downloading the hotfixes you need and then renaming the hotfixes by removing the hotfix number and just leaving the date and time as the file name (or moving the hotfix number to the end of the file name). Sort the file list by file name, alphabetically and ascending, and your files should be in the correct order starting from the top. Extract all of the files from the .tar archive files (maintaining the directory structure included in the archive), starting with the oldest hotfix. You can keep extracting and overwriting files as necessary until all hotfixes are extracted.

Now would be a good time to backup your web site. I use my FTP program to download a full copy of my web site to somewhere safe on my local computer. Hotfixes don't typically do anything with the database, but having a dump of the ocPortal database would probably be a good idea. Once backed up, you can use FTP or your web host control panel to upload the directory structures from the extracted hotfixes. The directory structures extracted from the hotfixes will match up with directory structure at the base of your ocPortal installation.

A note about downloading only the hotfixes you need... Don't download all hotfixes unless you are sure you need them all. Some hotfixes may be specific to addons you may not have installed. Installing all hotfixes may result in some addons being partially installed that you currently don't have installed.

Thanks Jason, I was able to upgrade to 9.0.18 after applying the hotfix. Also after your explanation and after looking at the extracted files it all came back to me  O_o   :thumbs:  :thumbs:
