Hi everyone!
I had this same problem in january and solved by restoring everything.
This time I'm not goin to back down before figuring out why this does not work.
Francois told me I had not provided enough info, last time, so now I'll try to do better ;)
What I've done so far:
1 - Checked error log:
[2018-12-06 10:50:52]: error: directory is writable by others: (/home/gerardpr/public_html/blog/install)
[2018-12-06 10:50:32]: error: directory is writable by others: (/home/gerardpr/public_html/blog/install)
[Thu Dec 06 10:22:18.431676 2018] [:error] [pid 23240] [client] script not found or unable to stat: /home/gerardpr/public_html/main.php
2 - Renamed _maintenance.html to maintenance.html and _imaintenance.html to imaintenance.html
I can still not access the install folder: when I click on the "installer" button I get a 500 - Internal Server Error You have schema version «12320», but we would need «12987».
3 - Checked permissions on the Install folder: 775
4 Checked for the existence of main.php in the site root. The file does not exist here nor in B2evo directory (Blog)
Shot a bunch of screenshots.
It appears I'm close, but not yet quite there.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

In between we have added a blue box on the "new support request" from. You ignored most of it.

  • Name of your webhost?
  • URLs of your screenshots?

Your screenshots show no URLs. So it's guesswork and I hate it. I am assuming the last screenshot is what you see when you try to access the install directory to finish your upgrade. ---> Name of your webhost?

[2018-12-06 10:50:52]: error: directory is writable by others: (/home/gerardpr/public_html/blog/install)

Your screenshot seems to show correct permissions yet this error is still generated... by the CPanel on your webhost. NOT by b2evolution. ---> have you asked your webhost why that error occurs despite correct permissions?

Is there a way to check owner and group of files in addition to just the permissions (ie 755) ?

Hi Francois,

What would my life be without you kicking my ass every once and a while?
Hahaha kind of love it by now
If I had seen a blue box with the word support, believe I would have clicked on it...
We host is site ground, and I'm running php 5.6.
I took the site off-line with $maintenance in basic_config because as far as I know everybody could see screenshot one.
The URLs are standard, I.e.
All others generate a 500 error.

And just to clear that one up: I was at no time blaming B2evo; i am fully aware that this is server side.
Which is why your help is even more appreciated

Hi Francois
Problem fixed
As it turned out, a whole bunch of directories had 775 permissions on them even when cpanel was showing 755.
I am clueless why, but my hosting service fixed it and the install finished in seconds.
As I have confirmed once again, bevo install is a very robust process.
Thanks for the hard work!
Looking forward to the next time you kick my butt

As I've had the same problem .i.e. permissions needed changing, although this only happened doing an auto upgrade, can you confirm that the default file/folder settings as per your link are the ones to keep

  • All boxes checked
  • Folders 775
  • files 664

@amoun No I can't confirm that. The required permissions depend on the server setup.

If your server is like @gerardp's you probably need 755 & 644.
