Upgrade to oC 8.1.x (known issues and faq)

Postby RealRancor » Tue Jul 07, 2015 2:27 pm

Blogpost about upgrading: https://owncloud.org/blog/upgrading-to- ... erver-8-1/

General changes in this release: https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/adm ... ges-in-8-1

Blogpost about memcache configuration: https://owncloud.org/blog/making-ownclo ... h-caching/

Please read those links carefully!!!


Changes / Configurations needed / Problems


Sync-Client can't connect anymore

Logfile is showing:
Unsupported client version.


With oC 8.1 only clients in version 1.7 and higher are allowed to connect in the default configuration. Please see the release notes for more infos.


forcessl missing / not working

This now needs to be configured in your webserver: https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/adm ... c-to-https

If you don't have access to your webserver see here for example:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/133 ... p-to-https


Security & setup warnings on admin page

This page contains most pointers how to configure your environment:

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/adm ... nings.html


The "Strict-Transport-Security" HTTP header is not configured

See: https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/adm ... t-security

Without access to your webserver config see here for example: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/241 ... y-on-https


Various HTTP header not set

For Apache make sure that mod_headers as well as mod_env is loaded within your webserver. Then the headers are set by the shipped .htaccess.

When getting warnings about the missing HTTP headers even if those are set:

1. Apache: Check that your server config file (like /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/ssl.conf) doesn't contain already set header like:

Header always set X-Frame-Options DENY

2. NginX: Make sure you're using this statement within your config: https://github.com/owncloud/documentation/pull/1330


All files are missing in files overview

Try to disable the Pictures App: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues ... -119326318


Finder on Mac OS X is read-only

WebDAV Locking was removed in oC 8.1.0 which is causing Finder on Mac OS X to mount the WebDAV as read-only. There is currently no workaround available. Please follow https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/17732 for updates.

Various issues with Samba/SMB

Try to install the php5-smbclient by following the installation instructions available here:

https://software.opensuse.org/download. ... bsmbclient

Also see this blogpost: https://squarecone.com/2015/08/owncloud ... es-broken/


App overview empty / only shows "Enabled" and "Not enabled" category

Please see this FAQ: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=29790



"app":"cron","message":"Missing memcache class \\OC\\Memcache\\APCu for local cache"

or

"app":"cron","message":"Missing memcache class \OC\Memcache\APC for local cache"

How to configure ACP/APCu for CLI/Cron can be found here: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues ... -119248944


Bugs and their workarounds

CalDAV / CardDAV sync stopped working after the upgrade

There is currently a bug in the contacts and calendar app which prevents the synchronization if the app are only enabled for a specific group.

"Installation is in transit between the old Encryption" even encryption isn't enabled

If you had enabled the encryption app in the past but know don't use it anymore see here how to solve this message: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues ... -119694971



Already Fixed or workaround in place


Contacts of birthdays not working anymore

Fixed with calendar 0.7.1 and contacts 0.4.0.1

You need to have at least version 0.7.1 of the calendar app and currently also this fix: https://github.com/owncloud/contacts/pull/970 until a new version of the contacts app was released.



Encryption migration fails

Try to disable the Trashbin / files_trashbin app: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/16928


App installation from appstore is failing or "No internet connection" is showing

It seems this could be also caused by either:

- A bug in curl / nss on CentOS/RHEL (Warning if wrong version is used will be introduced with oC 8.1.1/8.2)
- A bug within PHP
- A copied over config.sample.php to config.php with empty proxy settings in it

See https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues ... -122663640 for more info.



cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate

Seems to be a bug in openssl according to https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/17446
Warning if wrong OpenSSL version is used will be introduced with oC 8.1.1/8.2

Also make sure you're not missing the /config/ca-bundle.crt file in your installation directory.

App update is failing after upgrade to oC 8.1.x

https://mailman.owncloud.org/pipermail/ ... 01408.html


Various issues with Samba/SMB

Bugreport: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/17800

Fix is planned for oC 8.1.1: https://github.com/owncloud/core/pull/1 ... -125675796


It is not recommended to upgrade encryption-enabled systems from ownCloud Server 8.0
to version 8.1.0 as there is a chance the migration will break. We recommend to
migrate to the first bugfix release, ownCloud Server 8.1.1.


If you already migrated and have a broken installation please see: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/17574

Contacts 0.3.0.19

ownCloud with a version lower than 8.0 is required.

[Edit] O.K. i see now that there is a specific version for 8.1. I will try to install manualy as the automatic update doesn't work.

Hi,

it makes no sense to post untranslated texts in there. For oC 8.1.0 you need the latest Contacts App 0.4.0.0 from the appstore.

A very important consideration: read the release notes!!!

https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/adm ... notes.html

There are a bunch of issues mentioned in there, including the fact that you can bump into upgrade issues with your apps and cURL error messages. We try to keep the page updated, too - with the most important caveats.

If you have problems during your upgrade: Please create a separate issue for your problem!

We try to collect known issues AND their workarounds in here, not giving support for various issues where no known solution is available yet.

Can't migrate encryption keys when trashbin is enabled:

perhaps this one is worth adding: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/17457
Upgrade stuck in a loop, ownCloud just tells you to reload and try again. There is a work-around.

We should also link to https://doc.owncloud.org/server/8.1/adm ... leshooting

Edit: we should also add this one: https://github.com/owncloud/core/issues/17448
After update to 8.1 an error message appears that no internet access is available.
This is due to a distro specific cURL issue, it seems.

Another tip worth adding:
If you get something like:

Code: Select all

PHP message: PHP Fatal error:  Class 'OC\ActivityManager' not found in /var/www/owncloud/lib/private/server.php on line 249

Try to disable all apps (see occ command in docs) and enable them again step by step

You'll find what app is problematic. Sometimes upgrading that one by hand can help, or disabling it.

If ownCloud Documents does not work, see https://github.com/owncloud/documents/i ... -119906936

How to recover from broken encryption:

Developer suggests to wait for the 8.1.1 release to migrate encrypted setups.

Hi,

I´m running on 8.0.4 and wondering why there´s no update to v8.1 shown via the Update Center.

Is this a bug or the normal update process (new major versions - like 8.1 - only via manual update for existing users)?
