I was trying to upgrade the planning module from 1.1.11 to 1.2, following the instructions where I just replace the module files (both in app and public directories) and immediately every page of ActiveCollab started generating errors and wouldn't display.
After an hour of troubleshooting, I figured out the following settings need to be defined in the database FIRST!!!!
You really should fix your upgrade process/instructions! Most users would not have been able to troubleshoot and fix this!
EMPLOYEEI’m confident0Hi Anthony,
Sorry for the trouble. The upgrade instructions mention that you need to upload / overwrite the files and Uninstall and Install the module from ActiveCollab administrator.
Installing the module creates these entries in the database automatically.
activeCollab does not have a module upgrade process yet - the only way is to uninstall and install. We are limited by it for now.
Thank you for bringing this up. Some users may indeed face this. We will add a note to our upgrade instructions not to forget the uninstall / install step.
I hope things are working fine now. I still recommend uninstall and install from activeCollab admin.
I did follow the instructions as you said. I overwrote the existing files with the new ones, and immediately I started getting the errors with ActiveCollab. I was never able to proceed to the uninstall step. Once I created the db entries I was then able to uninstall/install.
I suggest that you recommend people uninstall their existing module first.
