Hi folks,

i tried to migrate from my CE 6.3.4 to 6.3.5 following the guide "https://docs.openkm.com/kcenter/view/ok ... to-635.html".

After executing the script there are no result or error displayed. Seems to me i'm successful.
But in administration tab i still get the old version displayed "Version: 6.3.4 (build: 47204ef)"

What i'm doing wrong?

Have you stopped tomcat, deleted the detailed folders and cleaned the browser cache?
If you have any weird problem try to stop Tomcat, delete these folders:

Recommended to clear browser cache and Java Plugin cache.

Thanks Inovoa. I followed your advice and delete both folders and clear caches.

Now after logging in as Admin (or any other user) i get the Error message below. Cant continue.

If i restore both folders, everything works as before.

Any ideas?

Error solved by myself. Works fine know.

Solution: before restart tomcat, change the OpenKM.cfg again to "hibernate.hbm2ddl=update"

All together, for a sucessfull update here are my steps:

1. Make a backup!!!
2. Stop Tomcat
3. Edit OpenKM.cfg and set hibernate.hbm2ddl to update
4. Replace the OpenKM.war
5. Delete these folders:
- $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/OpenKM
- $TOMCAT_HOME/work/Catalina/localhost
6. Start Tomcat again
7. Go to Administration > Scripting execute:
Code: Select all
import com.openkm.core.DatabaseException;
import com.openkm.dao.bean.CronTab;
import com.openkm.dao.CronTabDAO;

static final String MAIL = "noreply@openkm.com";

try {
    for (CronTab ct : CronTabDAO.findAll()) {
        if (ct.getMail().equals(MAIL)) {
} catch (Exception e) {
    print("Exception: " + e);
Thats all. :lol:

That is not really fair.

The manual only says to delete the /OpenKM/ and /localhost/ folders if stopping tomcat results in any weird issues. I too had no signs of tomcat stopping weird which would result in having delete those folders per the manual.

Hi folks,

I try to migrate from CE 6.3.4 to 6.3.5, but without success. I follow the migration procedure including any hint. But after login the popup windows shows loading openkm and stop at "loading user values".
Has anyone any hint?

Best regards

Ubuntu 20.04
tomcat 7.0.53, openjdk 1.8.0_342
Starting from OpenKM 6.3.2 offline installation, migrate to 6.3.3 and 6.3.4 (all correct I think)

After any OpenKM upgrade the UI maybe stalled because changes, simply force to refresh the browser cache ( set the URL, and then SHIFT + refresh icon in the browser -> that should refresh the current URL in the cache of the browser )
