Error upgrade from 2.2.2 to 2.2.3

Post by Andrew Prior »

Hi. I tried to update to 2.2.3 today.
I changed all files in public_html to writeable, verified the public_htl is also writeable, flushed the cache, and ran the phar.

I get the error "Fatal Error Invalid config value for dest - not a directory, or not writable"

Does anyone have any clues where to go next. I'm out of my league here.

Andrew

Were you using the standard or expanded installer?
Did you override the destination directory in any way?
Tried from an incognito window just in case?

This message checks if the determined installation directory itself IS a directory, and IS writable. Please don't use FTP to check if it is writable, use SSH as FTP clients have been proven to be unreliable in this regard.

Please post system information from "Extensions >> System Information" (there is a bbcode option) on all posts asking for assistance.

If you can't bother explaining your problem well, you shouldn't expect much in the way of assistance.

Thankyou Calguy.
I used the standard phar installer. Uploaded with cPanel... my usual method. Checked write permissions on all the files and the dirctory using the cPanel file manager. Also tried to run from an incognito window in Chrome and in Edge. Same error.

I was under the impression the expanded installer was only for clean installs and not upgrades... or did I read that incorrectly?

Snort... I have found the upgrade problem. Host had turned off the php phar extension in the maybe 1 hour slot between updating one website on the same server and then getting to this one! So that's a lesson learned!
