Webuzo 2.8.3 Launched

Hi,

The Webuzo Team has launched 2.8.3. The following is the list of changes :

1) [Bug Fix] On Ubuntu server, the Webuzo service was stopped after reboot due to which the panel was inaccessible. This has been fixed now.

2) [Bug Fix] Auto redirecting to secure login on port 2003 was causing the issue on domains configured with Cloudflare. This has been fixed.

3) [Bug Fix] Apps description on the left panel categories was wrong. This is fixed now.

4) [Bug Fix] Changing MYSQL password with special character % and & from Webuzo panel was not changed correctly. This is fixed now.

5) [Bug Fix] While importing installations from a remote server, if the remote server had a very low PHP/Webserver timeout the database was not imported properly. This has been improved to export the database from the source server in parts to avoid timeout.

6) [Bug Fix]: If the Auto Backup Rotation was set as ‘Unlimited’, on the edit installation page it was pre-selected as 4. Though the setting was saved correctly the dropdown was prefilled incorrectly. This is fixed now.

7) [Bug Fix]: While installing a script in sub-directory if the user added a leading slash (e.g. /dir) on the install form Webuzo was adding double slash in the URL. This is fixed now.

8) [Bug Fix]: Emojis used in installations were not copied correctly during Clone, Staging, Push to Live, Remote Import, Backups, and Restore. This has been fixed now.

The upcoming version will bring some Improvements, features and changes.

Webuzo 2.8.0 Launched

Hi,

The Webuzo Team has launched 2.8.0. The following is the list of changes :

1) [Improvement] : Added option to delete FTP home directory when deleting FTP account.

2) [Improvement] : Auto Upgrade WordPress Plugins and Themes option (when selected by users for their installation) previously used to upgrade only active plugins and themes. It will now upgrade all plugins and themes, the active ones as well as inactive ones.

3) [Improvement] : While Restoring a backup, previously Webuzo used to overwrite the backup files/folders over the existing files/folders. We have now added a checkbox “Delete existing files/folders” on Restore page which when selected will delete existing files/folders and then untar the backup files.

4) [Improvement] : While searching plugins/themes (from wordpress.org) on Manage Sets page in admin as well as enduser panel, more details like logo, author, rating, link to wordpress.org plugin/theme page will be displayed.

5) [Improvement] : When “Sync installations list with WebuzoRecords” setting was enabled from Webuzoadmin panel previously it used to check if installation directory exists everyday via cron. If the directory does not exist, the installation was removed from Webuzo records. Now it will also check if there are installation files in the directory. If the directory exists but the installation files are not present it will be removed from Webuzo Records.

6) [Bug Fix] : After adding UTF-8 characters in Staging installation the characters were not displayed correctly after pushing the installation to live. This is fixed now.

7) [Bug Fix] : WordPress installations made in public_html directory (i.e. domain root) having Wordfence plugin installed had some files created in root WordPress directory which was not included in Backup and Clone. This is fixed now and these files will be included in Backup and Clone.

8) [Bug Fix] : When enabling Varnish the varnish service needed to start manually. This is fixed now.

9) [Bug Fix] : If bandwidth limit set is higher than the usage the email was still sent. This is fixed now.

Fixed: EspoCRM displayed error when using MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 versions on server

There was a bug in MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 Webuzo packages that when installing EspoCRM MariaDB version was being displayed as empty thus causing EspoCRM installation failure. We have fixed the issue and launched MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 packages.

Now EspoCRM will be installed properly on server using MariaDB 10.0, 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 versions. We request all our users to update MariaDB packages by executing below cron command:
# /usr/local/emps/bin/php /usr/local/webuzo/cron.php

In order to apply the change, please reinstall MariaDB 10.X version on your server. But please remember to first take backup of all your databases using Webuzo Database Backup utility first and then reinstall MariaDB 10.X version on server.
