We are on 7.7.8 and the upgrade option doesn’t work, freezes at step 2. Can’t run the Quick repair because the repair will break Suitecrm hard by changing permissions on the module en_lang files to immutable, unable to delete and completely disables the CRM.
Because our site was hacked a few weeks ago, I thought the best path forward was a clean install of 7.7.8. Copy over the /custom and /cache files along with .config and config-override.php files. Before anyones says it, yes, we were very careful on resetting permissions. This CRM is so brittle, permissions are key to keeping it somewhat running.
At this point, after 30 man hours, we have SuiteCRM running on a SiteGround host, with no errors showing in suitecrm.log. However, the upgrade path is broken. Does anyone have any ideas to get us upgraded?
