Having the blues upgrading to Sugar 6.2?

Matthew Marum —  June 28, 2011 — 2 Comments

We’ve heard from the early adopters of Sugar 6.2 of a few issues seen during upgrade, namely:

  • jssource/src_files/ directory gone after upgrade
  • Silent Upgrade errors out ( PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined method RepairAndClear::clearExternalAPICache() in silentUpgrade_step2.php )
  • Certain customizations to the ‘templateMeta’ section of editviewdefs are not being preserved.

Rest assured that we are working on them internally, and will be including them as a part of our 6.2.1 upgrade coming in mid-July. We advise anyone upgrading from a previous version of SugarCRM to 6.2 to wait to upgrade until after the 6.2.1 patch comes out.

Thanks everyone for your understanding!

    Rename tabs never works.  etc etc.

    From the logs:

    [FATAL] Configuration variable date.timezone is not set, guessed timezone America/Los_Angeles. Please set date.timezone=”America/Los_Angeles” in php.ini!
