Migrating from 7.14.4 to 8.6.1: Exception in Controller: No module defined (nothing on home screen after login)


After migrating to 8.6.1, I am stuck on a blank home page. Any clues appreciated :slight_smile:


I migrated from 7.14.4 to 8.6.1.

After login, I get the home page but nothing on it.

In the public/legacy/suitecrm.log, the only error is this:

[103][1][FATAL] Exception handling in /app/suitecrm/public/legacy/include/MVC/Controller/SugarController.php:397
[103][1][FATAL] Exception in Controller: No module defined


  • VPS
  • SuiteCRM in custom docker, based on php8.2-apache
  • PHP 8.2
  • MariaDB in docker, version: 10.11
  • SuiteCRM version: 8.6.1
  • Operating System: Linux

Other info

I did the migration by following the steps here: migration instructions

Migration was successful, but I could not login → In the database, I changed the id of the admin user to 1 (from this post)
It worked immediately after this.

Maybe it solves the login problem but messes things up in other ways? Permissions?
