Upgrade worked fine with no issues

Same as Duck; 3 sites - no issues.

Discovered excess .htaccess (with a date/time suffix) files on all three sites, which I was able to remove via the helpful upgrader.

This was an issue I mentioned in forum a while ago when I started to get 505 errors. All fixed now.

Greetings from the sunny Algarve …!!



It keeps saying my password is inccorect
Is that when using the upgrader? If so, are you using the correct password? The upgrader needs the Master Password and not your user web site account password. The Master Password would have been setup when you first installed ocPortal. If you can't remember it, you can reset by editing it in the info.php file in your web site root directory. In info.php, find this line:


somerandomstringhere will be some random string of text (your encrypted password). Change that string of text to be a plain text password that you will use temporarily. Once you have the info.php file edited and saved to your site, open the config_editor.php in a web browser and login using that newly created password. On that Config Editor page, go down to the admin_password line and enter in the password you want to use as the permanent Master Password, enter the same password in the confirmation line below it, and then click the Edit button at the bottom of the page. That will save your password in the info.php file as an encrypted password so it isn't plain text readable.

Now you can go to the upgrader and use this new password.

Upgraded on 3 sites

2 from 9.0.13 - 9.0.14
1 from 9.0.9 - 9.0.14

All 3 went fairly smooth. One of the 13 sites did have a lot of missing files after integrity scan that needed uploading but other than that all seems to have gone really well.
