Upgrading downed site to 5.6.4.0 from 5.6.1 doesn't work

Permalink
Hi!

My site has gone down due to server upgrade at the host. The changed from MySql to MariaDB, and my site that's from 2015-ish couldn't take it.

Now I'm trying to upgrade to 5.6.4.0 by uploading and exchanging the "concrete" folder on the server. But when I type in the Upgrade-url (https://site.com/ccm/system/upgrade) I can only do a fresh installation due to full Database.

What am I missing? It's been years since I used concrete5.

I just want to upgrade the site and us the old database.

Thank!

Mr Lindau

Your site config file may contain a redirect of the core to the upgrades folder. Remove the redirect if its there.

I can't find any files inside the config-folder of the site. Unless you mean the config-folder under the concrete-core?

I do have a htacess-file if that could mess things up?
If I remove it completely I can't even get the "install concrete5"-page

# -- concrete5 urls start --
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTPS} !=on
RewriteRule ^/?(.*) https://%{SERVER_NAME}/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^(www.)?site.se$
RewriteRule ^(/)?$ se/startsida/  [L]

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}/index.html !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}/index.php !-f
RewriteRule . index.php [L]
</IfModule>
# -- concrete5 urls end --

Ah now I remember what you talk about. No there are no other upgrades done so no installations in the upgrade-folder. Sorry forgot how it works.

The folders described in the upgrade url from the documentation:
/ccm/system/upgrade

shouldn't there be such folder on the server to? cause I can't find any...

You are reading the wrong documentation for your site.
Try..

Although... this upgrade page did still send me to "Install Concrete 5" ...

And PHP is 5.3 on the server...

I may be able to recover the site if I can have copies of the files and database or server access to get the copies myself.
The copies will be loaded to my dev server so I can assess the problems and hopefully fix them.
If you want me to do this, send me a private message.

Thanks for the offer, but I got the host company to revert the mysql version and restore to original version from backups so that I can do the upgrade.

There was something wrong on the site, don't know what. But I got it working locally on my computer. I'm gonna redo it in concret5 8 instead.

But now another site on the same account stopped working when I updated the php version, everything worked fine, the auto update inside the dashboard and the site broke.
The site was 5.7.1.3 dashboard update to 8.2.1 and now to the recommended version which I don't remember.

I've restored yesterdays backup and still it throws this error. With restored files AND Database. How is that even possible?

I'm sorry if I sound a bit frustrated and don't give all needed facts but I'm so f***ing tired of this right now.
