Virtuemart auto-update fails - please help to solve! Thanks!
« on: April 20, 2012, 19:20:56 pm »
Hello guys,

all your help is needed. As you have probably noticed already, the VM auto-updater does not really reliable.

The problem is very complex because each server and each installation may have different settings. So let's try to help the Virtuemart-team with this thread to find what´s the reason of this crazy issues.

All what you need to do is, if you also have the live-update problems, that you post the following informations of your server settings and your systen in this thread.

I will update the first post of the thread a few times a day, so the Virtuemart-team can take the essential data, without reading the whole post and the discussion.

THANKS FOR ANY HELP!!!!!


These informations are required:
a) Server system
b) PHP-version
c) SQL-version
d) memory_limit
e) max_execution_time
f) Exact Joomla! version
g) Exact Virtuemart version BEFORE update
h) Exact Virtuemart version of the update you want to
i) Displayed error message
j) Any not writable directory Permissions?
k) Optional: Any other info?


Here the first data from our systems as an example:

RICHARD:
a) Apache/2.2.21 (Linux)
b) PHP/5.2.17
c) MySQL-Client-Version: 5.1.39
d) memory_limit = 50M
e) max_execution_time = 90
f) 2.5.4
g) 2.0.2
h) 2.0.6
i) Extracting the update package failed. Please try updating the extension manually.
j) all writeable
k) none

SIMON:
a) Apache/2.2.21 (Linux)
b) PHP/5.2.17
c) MySQL-Client-Version: 5.1.39
d) memory_limit = 50M
e) max_execution_time = 90
f) 2.5.4
g) 2.0.4
h) 2.0.6
i) Unable to decompress data / Extracting the update package failed.
j) all writeable
k) bz2 und zip extension


TOBIAS:
a) Apache/2.0.63 (Unix)
b) PHP/5.3.2 DAV/2
c) 5.1.44
d) memory_limit = 512M
e) max_execution_time = 300
f) 2.5.4
g) 2.0.2
h) 2.0.6
i) Unable to decompress data / Extracting the update package failed. Please try updating the extension manually.
j) all writeable
k) none


Where can you find the data?

Virtuemart Core (2 possibilities to find it)
---> Please go to your Virtuemart dashboard and look at the bottom of the page at the left hand side
---> Please check it in the extension manager (http://www.yoursite.tld/administrator/index.php?option=com_installer&view=manage)





Joomla   (1 possibilities to find it)
---> Go to your Joomla! backend and look at the bottom of the page





All System-Infos
--> Go to the following URL in your backend and find the data in the 5 tabs:
   http://www.yoursite.tld/administrator/index.php?option=com_admin&view=sysinfo


   
   
But this costs me time!!!
   Yes, you´re right but:
   --> any failed update needs more time ;)
   --> the VM team also spends a lot of time for us
   --> we´re a community, you get VM for free, so please pay with your feedbacks ;)


If you have further suggestions, what I forgot, then please give notice. Thanks!

Thank you very much for your input guys. Thank you yannick.

I think we have here two different issues. One issue is that some servers do not support the tar.gz or they get an error extracting it (I use 7-zip on Windows to compress it). The other issue seems to be for me the time. 30 secs for an installation of a 2mb file is just very short. When your connection is not strong, you need for the 2 mb already 20 seconds or even more.

Our problem atm is that there is also a problem with the live updater even when the people have servers which can use tar.gz and with an high execution time (for example 120 secs). I have different results on the same machine with almost the same packages. Strange thing, personnally I think the error is in the ars itself.
I should fix your bug, please support the VirtueMart project and become a member

Any help would be apreciated.

I just got a message of some guy from denmark, they just changed the url and used their own server and it worked. Seems that our current hoster is just too slow.

That's a great information.
What is the URL to try this workaround ?

I can confirm the url workaround. I created my own download location and provisioning file.
And changed the path in './liveupdate/config.php'.
Installation went fine.

Maybe it's time for some 'extra' download locations?
With the provisioning method an ip-based close-location download should be possible....
