Re: Expedition Hangs on first login with gui credentials.

I'm having the same issue.

Also -- when I run:

   sudo apt-get install expedition-beta

I get the following message:
    expedition-beta is already the newest version (1.0.105).

Is there a 1.0.106 -- and if so, what should I do to install it?

Thanks,

Re: Expedition Hangs on first login with gui credentials.

Try this:

 

sudo apt-get autoremove

--> the above will remove any update packages.

 

Try the update again:

 

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install expedition-beta

 

Also, after the update is installed you will want to edit the files using the settings below. This may fix your log in issues:

 

The below change is needed to allow Expedition to import configuration files larger than 5 MB.

 

PHP:

Edit couple parameters from php.ini located at:

 

sudo vi /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini

 

Modify:

 

post_max_size = 250M

upload_max_filesize = 250M

 

restart the Apache with

 

sudo systemctl restart apache2

 

 

The below change should resolve your log in error message.

1- php.ini for Apache

Edit the php.ini file for Apache with the following command

sudo nano /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini

change (you can use the Search feature with ^W)

mysqli.reconnect = Off

to

mysqli.reconnect = On

Write the changes with ^O and exit nano with ^X

 

 

2- php.ini for CLI

Edit the php.ini file for Apache with the following command

sudo nano /etc/php/7.0/cli/php.ini

change (you can use the Search feature with ^W)

mysqli.reconnect = Off

to

mysqli.reconnect = On

 Write the changes with ^O and exit nano with ^X

 

 

3- Apply the changes

Once the changes are done, apply them by

sudo service apache2 restart

You can't upgrade Ubuntu.  You have to restore from a clone or snapshot or rebuild the VM from scratch.

Re: Expedition Hangs on first login with gui credentials.

Yeah I learned the hard way.  There was also a post by Albert (founder of Expedition) that at this time we should ignore the Ubuntu upgrade.
