Troubleshooting Vanilla

These are some generic tips for addressing problems during an upgrade.

  • Set $Configuration['Debug'] = TRUE; in your conf/config.php to reveal full error messages. Remember to remove it when you are done.
  • Clear your browser cache and cookies, then restart your browser.
  • Clear *.ini files from the cache folder.
  • Revert to the default theme. You can do this manually in conf/config.php by setting the $Configuration['Garden']['Theme'] value to default.
  • Disable plugins. If you cannot get to your Dashboard, you can manually delete lines containing EnabledPlugins in conf/config.php but do not remove HTMLawed’s line.
  • Try running /utility/update again (see upgrade instructions).
  • Verify your permissions and default role settings are correct for every role.
  • Start a new discussion on this site with your version number (likely 2.2 if you’re reading this), the exact error message you got, and what you were doing when you got it.
