Problem with "Check for Updates"

edited March 2008 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
When I click on Updates & Reminders and then check for updates now you come to a page which is supposed to check all versions of vanilla and extensions. But this doesn't work, the "ajax wait animation" just goes round round round. I'm using vanilla 1.1.4


  • I have the same issue. Do the "check for updates" scripts require any PHP settings or libraries to be enabled that are uncommon in a shared hosting environment? I had no trouble setting up Vanilla on my home server that has fairly open PHP configs and I don't remember this process taking more than a few seconds. Does Vanilla log this process anywhere that could help troubleshoot the issue?
  • Actually, I'm seeing "UpdateCheck is not defined" on my JavaScript error console. Are the paths to the JS functions borked in the Vanilla package I downloaded today?

    Sorry to keep self-replying, but maybe this helps someone else. My error was caused due to improper file permissions on the js directory. Once I set the appropriate perms for the js and ajax directories, the updater worked as expected.
    $ chmod 755 js ajax
    Apparently, my unzipping utility preserved the permissions more appropriately when I installed Vanilla the last time. something to keep in mind...
