Errors During Update

The vast majority of “errors” or issues with SlickStack can be solved by simply running the following scripts, sometimes repeatedly, until all files and configuration are force updated:

  • ss-check
  • ss-worker
  • ss-update
  • ss-install

If you have run ss-update or ss-install for example, but encounter either errors in the shell (CLI) or frontend (e.g. 500 error, etc) simply run the above 4 scripts multiple times. If that still doesn’t fix your issue, try rebooting the server and then run these 4 scripts again until the issue is solved.
