Don’t forget to stop Seafile Server before the upgrade (i.e: service seafile-server stop or, another example: service seahub stop && service seafile stop)
Don’t forget to change the directory rights of Seafile after unpacking it (i.e: chown -R seafile:nogroup seafile-server-6.0.5 or, another example: sudo chown -R seafile:seafile seafile-server-6.0.5 )
Don’t forget to apply the upgrade script/s according your start release && with the properly user which in normal case should be seafile (i.e change to seafile user: su - seafile -s /bin/bash or, another example: sudo su seafile)
Maybe you wanna check the technical FAQ for further troubleshooting. Many typical workarounds are described there.
Once again, thanks to the developers and Seafile Community
upgrading to 6.0.5 I had some kind of problem: Seahub wasn’t displayed right (“text only”) until I restarted the whole server. I always restarted the whole system after upgrading so I wanted to ask: is it necessary to restart the whole server?
I followed the instructions after untarring the archive
“sudo chown -R seafile:seafile seafile-server-6.0.5”
but after setup I cannot start ./seahub.sh with the normal seafile user.
./seafile.sh starts without problems.
Error:Seahub failed to start.
When I do sudo ./seahub.sh - it starts without complaining. But then I am having problems setting up HTTPS. Please help !
hm… I don’t see some error. Rellay strange. If you don’t have the time to reinstall the Seafile I can only offer you some assisting with SSH. Actually set up of Seafile can be tricky (I remember very well my first not working setups). Contact me via PM if I should assist you via SSH (you could dd your current setup and then create a login for me, after I took a look you can dd your old setup and try again on a “non-touched system”).
