Upgrading [hang after forced update?]

All three of my Kiwi's act the same when upgrading. I force the build because I don't want to have them auto update. They will update but I can never access them via the browser unless I sign into them with ssh and reboot them. It has been this way for several versions. Has anyone else seen this?

    Also noticed this and it first started around v1.462,463 if I remember correctly. On a local network easy to reboot, from an outside connection that might be problematic depending on being able to reach the Kiwi server via ssh. Likely a power cycle will also work but I try to avoid that.

  • I tried it and it works fine for me: Update tab, "automatically check" and "automatically install" both set to "no". Then clicked the Build now button. It came back up after the build completed and I could connect to the admin and user pages.

    Please do a m slog | tail -n 500 from an ssh connection or the admin console tab. Look for something similar to the following which shows the build completing and a successful restart and post here or send to the support email.
