Updating EasyBlog with the latest version with the automated updater

Updating EasyBlog with the latest version with the automated updater

We have recently just noticed that there is some issues with the automated updater in EasyBlog if you are using version 3.7.14091 or lower. In order to update to the latest version using the automated updater, you will need to download the patch file.

To begin, download the file below. Then, extract it and upload the file into /administrator/components/com_easyblog/views/updater/ and overwrite the view.ejax.php file.

Patch file

We apologize for the inconveniences caused.

if my subscription expired. Does it automatically update?

  1. Mark

Sorry, but unfortunately it does not :( You need to have an active subscription to continue enjoying these benefits.

...I don't have the folder "updater", should I create it...? ...Im using Version : 3.7.13778

  1. Mark

Hm, that is strange. You should have that folder. It's in /administrator/components/com_easyblog/views/updater/

  1. Benoit Dion

...Oups my bad, I when right to the component folder instead of /administrator/...

Ah, not a problem :)

I missed this and already wrecked my EB installation with the automatic updater. Downloading the full version for reinstall over old. Once completed (assuming that EB recovers), do I still need to apply the above patch?

  1. Mark

Hello Tory,

Nope, you do not need to re-apply the patch if you have already re-installed the latest version :)

I have the following version version: 3.7.14091
The installer gets stuck at 5% even after applying the patch file. Please check this issue.

You must download com and install 3.7.14179 manually, there is a known bug 14091 and some earlier.

  1. Mark

Yep, Peter is right :)

I have tried first the update from within Joomla, then I put in the patch file and finally I have tried directly installing it. None works. On trying to install it using the Extension manager I get the error "There was an error uploading this file to the server"
Any advice would be really appreciated!

Hey Andrew,

It's most likely due to the php upload limit. If you are still stucked, submit a ticket at htttps://crm.stackideas.com and we will check this for you.

I have overwritten view.ejax.php but the installer still stuck at 5% so can't upgrade from 3.7.14091 to 3.7.14169. Any suggestions ?

I tried to upgrade from 3.7.14091. Installer stuck at 10%. Overwrote view.ejax.php file as instructed and now have the following fatal error:

require_once(/home/porty21/public_html/media/foundry/2.1/joomla/bootstrap.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/porty21/public_html/administrator/components/com_easyblog/controllers/controller.php on line 82
