Seahub won't start after running


I am pretty sure I borked my running installation. Also I did read most of the similarly named threads and tried their to solutions to no avail.

OS: Debian 9, arch: arm using the rpi release 6.3.4

What happened: I got confused by the version in the demo site and thinking a new CE version was I out I set out to upgrade. Did not follow the normal upgrade of extracting new version because I saw the upgrade dir and not thinking twice used the (or similarly named) after stopping seafile / seahub.

What happens now is that seafile starts fine but seahub throws either:

Starting seahub at port 8000 ...

Seahub is started


and seahub doesn’t start or:

Starting seahub at port 8000 ...
Error:Seahub failed to start.
Please try to run "./ start" again

also while seafile.log gets updated, seahub.log has not been updated since the “upgrade”.

permissions / ownership is fine, tried removing and re-extracting seafile-server_6.3.4_stable_pi.tar.gz

Any help trying to troubleshoot / fix my mistake would be appreciated.

anyone can offer some help?

plan B would be to somehow keep the data and import them on a new installation
