I have some websites in the drupal. I need to update the security modules in the old version to the latest version. The list of security modules I tried to attempt is as below
1)colorbox (current - v2.15, updated version - v2.17)
2)colorbox_node (current - v3.5, updated version - v3.8)
3)link (current - not sure, updated v1.11)
4)wysiwyg (current - v2.6, updated v2.9)
currently using drupal v7.78
For the site1 I have tried to update all the 4 modules. but it only updated the colorbox(v2.17), link(v2.9) and the colorbox_node(v3.5) and wysiwyg(v2.6) modules versions are not updated and remains at the same version
For site2 I have tried to update colorbox and colorbox_module but it only updated the colorbox_node(v3.8) and colorbox stayed at the same version(v2.15)
For the site3 I have tried to update all 4 modules and it updates only colorbox_module(v3.8) and link(v1.11). colorbox(v2.5) and wysiwyg(v2.6) modules stayed at the same version
I have replaced the new module files directly into the module folder in the server(/home/centos/public_html/site-x/sites/all/modules) ad then restarted the webserver(I found some other ways like updating via the admin interface, FTP but at the end, modules are only replaced in the server. So as an admin I directly replaced in the server)
Then tried the below steps to resolve the issue
- Applied 'flush all caches' in admin user
- Cleared all cached via 'configuration->developement->performance->clear all caches'
- Loaded with update.php (site/update.php) and updated from there(but here the modules are not showing as upgradable. only 'link' module is appeared and updated that module from update.php)
- Redeployed in the server many times
- Checked the module info file and verified that whether the replaced versions are correct
Note: Before attempting on the server, I tested locally, and all modules were properly updated, without any issues. But when updated in the live it is not updating. So in my perspective, I dont think it is a compatibility issue.
Any suggestions and troubleshooting are greatly appreciated; please guide me if I was incorrect in any of the above ways. If anyone needs more info please post in the comment. Honestly I dont know which tag to use for this question please feel free to edit if you want. Thanks for your support.
