some issues upgrading to 6.4

rrodriguezIDIS
Good morning!

I've just updated a 6.3 installation to 6.4 and it seems to me that something went wrong... I think I followed the same steps I successfully did in previous upgrades of the 6.x series, but this time it doesn't work. The process is outlined in the first comment of this page...

http://atriumkm.idisantiago.es/bin/ICT/XWikiUpgrade

This time, the last line was not true...

"The upgrade of the interface will be launched once an administrator log in."

Nothing happened once I've restarted the server. Thus, I've tried to import the 6.4 xar file. After a number of "bad gateway errors", I managed to import all new files selecting only some pages in a series of import actions. Then, change default Admin password, remove login right to Guest and config again All and Admin groups.

Almost all seems OK now, but there are at least a couple of issues here...

1) The installation keeps telling that it is a 6.3 release. This means that $xwiki.getVersion() is not aware of the update, or that the update has not succeed! You can check it here...

http://portal.idisantiago.es
http://portal.idisantiago.es/xwiki/bin/view/ICT/GetVersion

2) All top level links at http://portal.idisantiago.es/xwiki/bin/admin/XWiki/XWikiPreferences (Configuration, Email, Look & Feel, ), led to this error...

Please, could you help me with this issues?

Thanks!

Re: some issues upgrading to 6.4

Did you removed solr index as suggested in the release note at
http://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/ReleaseNotes/ReleaseNotesXWiki64 ?

""
In this release, we're now providing an easy way to install SOLR as an
external server. When doing this change, we moved a plugin inside the
SOLR index directory. Thus, if you're using XWiki with SOLR in
embedded mode (the default), when you upgrade, this plugin will not be
present in your SOLR directory and XWiki will fail to start. To work
around this problem, you'll need to remove the <permanent
directory>/solr/ directory (which will trigger a new reindexing when
you next start XWiki). This will be fixed in XWiki 6.4.1.

Unless I am mistaken, this version is stored in the property file:

 webapps/xwiki/WEB-INF/version.properties

If you still see a 6.3 there it is not unlikely that something with the upgrade part on the file system did not succeed.
If your XWiki installation still "thinks" it is 6.3, then the DW to update to 6.4 will not appear.
(Actually the DW uses the version number found in the  webapps/xwiki/META-INF/maven/org.xwiki.enterprise/xwiki-enterprise-web/pom.xml
These should better not differ anyway. )

 In WEB-INF/lib/ all the xwiki-platform-*.jar should have a 6.4 in the filename, too. If they do not, something went wrong.

Maybe check first if you really have the 6.4-vesion of the *.war file installed, and retry this step of the install if this is not the case.

I'd not found this problem until I restart the process as suggested by Clemens in its message posted at 13:02. I did something wrong in my previous attempt. Not, it seems all is working fine!

Thanks for your help and sorry for the noise!

Thanks Clemens! Followed your advice, I've restarted the process once I've checked that version.properties was not upgrade. I did something wrong in my previous attempt but I'm not able to figure out at which point I failed.

Sorry for the noise and thanks for your help!

Saúde!
