4.7 manual upgrade - issue

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Just to notify the team. When performing an upgrade of my community (self hosted) from  4.5x to 4.7.0, the automatic upgrade failed and it prompted me to upgrade manually. I followed the installation guide to complete the manual upgrade, downloading the 4.7 installation files from my client area and uploading my files over FTP successfully. However when I visited admin/upgrade I was prompted that there was an issue with the following file not being correct:


It stated that the file was not for the correct version, or the permissions were not correct. However after double checking permissions, redownloading and reuploading this file, I could see the error was with the file actually provided for download in the client area.

Thankfully an auto install worked correctly on my staging site and I could then see a difference in the files:
staging site: 56016 bytes
downloaded file56116 bytes

So after copying that file from my staging site over, the upgrade completed successfully.

Just want to avoid other users facing the same issue.

I have the same problem. Spent hours today trying to get the upgrade working, with no success.

How do I get the correct upgrade.php file to complete this upgrade?

You cant at present. This is a known issue we are in the process of fixing. The only way around it currently is to bypass the check as shown in the link above
