Same problem. Help?


conseguiu resolver ???


Sim. Fiz um backup do servidor - pq estava em produção.

Aí atualizei tudo, apt update, apt upgrade.

Então reinstalei o EE:
wget -qO ee rt.cx/ee4 && sudo bash ee

Depois que reinstalei voltou tudo ao normal.
Não perdi nada dos sites que estavam rodando.


the problem now is that
my current ee v3 setup has no database info
wordpress works
but this is what ee site info gives me

|DB_NAME||| deleted|
|DB_USER||| deleted|
|DB_PASS||| deleted|


Nada funciona - ja pesquisei de tudo nada deu certo tem 3 dias que tou nessa to quase desistindo de usar o EE


Mas o que está aconhescendo aí?


Conseguiram resolver?


just to update boils and ghouls,

i found a sqlite db editor (db browser for sqlite)
then I found the ee database sql from the server,
opened it manually
entered the user names and passwords and names of all the databases
and I was able to at least get ee working properly,

now im currently working on a new droplet for v4,

i must say though,
i’ve been using ee since like baaaack in the daaay son,
and the lack of support from devs, just because i missed the “v3 upgrade to v4” window of support…

note to devs:

i worked it out,
so please document this cumbersome workaround for the rest of us

much love
