upgrade to 3.5: platformtemplate step hangs
Hi, while trying to update my Mayan EDMS instance (direct deployment without rabbitmq) to version 3.5.5, the step involving
mayan-edms.py platformtemplate supervisord hang indefinitely. This happened for all versions between 3.5 and 3.5.5. Upgrading to 3.4.21 worked smoothly.
I identified the problem to be incorrect celery settings in /opt/mayan/media/config.yml as they were missing the password for authentication (which was added to the redis config as per upgrade instructions). For me, correcting the following lines to contain the password as below made it work:
CELERY_BROKER_URL: redis://:firstname.lastname@example.org:6379/0 CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND: redis://:email@example.com:6379/1
Just submitting this so you might update the upgrade instructions or anyone looking for this might find it.
