Upgrade Information

  • Please follow the regular upgrade documentation for Windows or Linux.
  • No extra steps or configurations are required during this upgrade.
  • Upgrading any previous version is possible.
  • Cluster: Running different versions on the servers in the cluster is supported but limited to version >= 11.5 when using LDAP.
  • Federation API is incompatible to versions below 11.6. Please review our documentation before upgrading.
  • For upgrading from a version < 11.4 please read the Upgrade information for the 11.4.565 release.

(warning) Mandatory checks before upgrading to version 11.6 (warning)

  • LDAP:
    • The mail addresses of LDAP users now get correctly imported by the LDAP mapping that is configured in PowerFolder Server. Please ensure, that this mapping is set correctly because else you might loose the mail addresses in your PowerFolder Server when the user logs in.
    • When the valid till date gets imported by a LDAP mapping it can't get changed within the PowerFolder Server.
    • When the quota gets imported by a LDAP mapping it will reset to this value every time the user log in.
  • Creating user accounts through invites:
    • When a user gets invited he has to register himself before he can change his password or before he logs in. The link to register the account gets send by the welcome mail so it is important that the welcome mail is activated.
    • An API call got created to activate accounts that don't have an activation date set. Please check our Accounts API documentation above.

Known Issues

  • Login for new Shibboleth/SAML users in version 11.6.703 is not working. A fix got implemented in version 11.6.706

Downgrade information (optional)

  • In case a downgrade to a previous version is necessary:
  • Version 11.6 is forward and backward compatible to older and newer versions.
  • Simply replace the PowerFolder-Server.jar file with that from the previous version you would like to run.
  • When you are using LDAP authentication and downgrading below version 11.5:
    • Enter your PowerFolder.config file before starting the server.
    • Delete the entries LDAP.<index>.
    • Delete the x in front of the old LDAP configuration entries.
  • Log messages due to the higher schema version of database can be ignored:
    • [DatabaseMigrator]: Database layout version is newer than expected.

New documentation

New configuration entries:

  • transfer.buffer.threshold= [value in bytes] Default: 2097152 = 2MB
    • The client and server will buffer files that are below the value completely in memory when uploading them. Please configure this value carefully. Values above the default are not recommended. Choose a lower value if memory consumption rises to high. Can get configured on server and client.
  • mail.smtp.ssl.enabled=[true|false]

    • Is also added to the preferences page.
  • web.inline_view.browser.whitelist=txt|png|jpg|jpeg|gif
    • Only those filetypes will get opened in the browser with the ?inline function. Files that get opened with OnlyOffice aren't affected by this configuration entry.
  • locking.changes.file_permissions=[true|false] Default: false
    • Changes the behavior of the server/client to set files to read only when it is detected that the file gets edited on a client.
