I upgraded my test website to 2.0.8 today and got the following message during the upgrade:
Warning: ftp_chdir() [function.ftp-chdir]: install/: No such file or directory in (CS_DIR)/var/upgrade/upgrade_2.0.7-2.0.8.tgz/uc_override.php on line 861
After that i con’t login. The lost my password link doesn’t work also.
Only thing i can do is manually overwrite all the files from the backup folder.
What could cause this?
Permissions could cause it. I have found that although 775 is called for in some situations, using 777 solves these problems.
Seems I ruined my install trying to fix this problem. I can get the admin to work again but the shopfront shows an empty page. Good thing it was just a test website.
Going to do a clean install and hopefully this will fix any upgrade problems.
I solved it with a new install. And for the record. The ownership of the files where the problem. Gave the ftp account ownership of the files and all was fine
Excellent. Thanks for posting your resolution.
I got this error also, and the upgrade says it was successful, but the notification box still shows to upgrade. I checked the config.php in root and it was still at v2.0.7
I got it to work by creating an install directory in the root of my cs-cart installation. I had deleted it after installing the cart initially, as prompted by the installer.
[QUOTE]Attention! It is strongly recommended to remove or rename the install directory for security reasons now.[/QUOTE]
In the manual it elaborates;
[QUOTE]â€¢ Rename or password protect the install directory (for security reasons).[/QUOTE]
So in future I’ll password protect it instead and remove the password during upgrades!
