Hello,

In order for auto-upgrade to work, all your files and folders in eFront filesystem MUST be writable.

So what i advice you to do...

Go one folder up, before your eFront root folder..

Change the owner of your eFront folder recursively

Code: Select all
chown -R apache:apache <eFront folder>


then make sure that you have all permissions, meaning that you have rwx (number 7) for this folder..
Run the command recursively:

Code: Select all
chmod -R 7xx <eFront folder>


kind regards
