We had Seafile server 7.1.3 using nginx running on Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS, configured with LDAP integration and all, and it functioned 100%. I recently upgraded to 8.0.7 as I didn’t want us to get too far behind. I made sure to install the pre-requisite packages as noted on the seafile manual here: /upgrade_notes_for_8.0.x/ before following the directions in /deploy/upgrade/
The upgrade script showed no failures and everything appeared to be fine. I was able to execute seafile.sh and seahub.sh from seafile-server-8.0.7 and adding /api2/server-info/ at the end of our server’s address returned that it was running 8.0.7. Seafile client showed no troubles, libraries were synced and synced any changes. However, when I went to look in our web portal, that’s where it became obvious that things were not alright. All it loaded was the background image. If I manually altered the URL I could get a white page with a long vertical list of languages and the login fields, but attempting login lead to a blank white page. Checking error logs show numerous 502 errors but I am not sure I’m even looking at the right stuff. If I stop seafile.sh and seahub.sh and restart them from the old seafile install folder /seafile-server-7.1.3/, everything works fine. Web interface and library syncing. This leaves me completely stumped because I have no idea what is causing the 502 errors.
Has anyone else run into this before? Does anyone have any ideas where I might need to be looking to figure this out (or point me at the obvious that I simply didn’t see)? Thank you very much in advance.
