Upgrade to 7.1.3 - Solution if seahub it's not starting

Hi all,
if it could be useful for someone else, even after following all steps here https://download.seafile.com/published/seafile-manual/upgrade/upgrade_notes_for_7.1.x.md Seahub was not starting. Starting manually throw this error:
File "/opt/seafile/seafile-server-7.1.3/seahub/thirdpart/django/core/cache/backends/memcached.py", line 162, in __init__ import memcache ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'memcache'

To make it working I had to install also python3 memcached with command
pip3 install --timeout=3600 python-memcached

Maybe documentation should be updated?


Thanks Gabri !

It is caused by that you use an old memcache configuration that depends on python-memcache. The new way is

'BACKEND': 'django_pylibmc.memcached.PyLibMCCache',

The old way is

'BACKEND': ‘'django.core.cache.backends.memcached.MemcachedCache',

Yep, I’ve seen on the other thread, but I’ve never found an upgrade document saying that it was deprecated :thinking:
