As i just managed to ship around some obstacles while upgrading fo 1.7.5 to 3.4 i´d like to note some hints.
0. Don´t forget to backup DB an backup Files

Up to 1.7.5 fo was running smoth on shared hosted servers.
Since 2 and definitely with 3 on your own server you will need a dedicated machine to have fun with.
#1  Check Server Requirements
Note that you will have to reload your webserver several times and check all kind of options if you run on errors.

Upgrading from 1 to 3 can be tricky so  RTFM and
#2 Install clean versions with clean dbs of fo, so you know everything is running fine.

While upgrading the db, if you got errors on missing or unkown tables:
#3 Export those tables from a clean version an import them to your migration db. Start again.

After installation you might experience blank screens.
#4 go back to 1. check php Version, check if the right version us actually used.

After changing some options (dimension selection tags) you get nothing but the header and a blank screen until you reload your webserver (see point #1)
After changing the task view option from date to date and the selection will only be displayed AFTER RELOADING your apache server (see #1)
AND NO tasks or only few are displayed unless you restart/reload your webserver:
#5 Disable Caching (in my case APC) in PHP

These are only hints/notes, and you will have to ask google for some more information on webserver administration if you run on errors while installing or upgrading fo.
Perhaps you have some more learnings, why not add them here.

Best wishes and a peacefull new year,

I know this topic is old but it might be interesting for those who search:
Check your error log, it might say something like

Session "default" started at 2015-10-09T12:21:21+0000
#1 ERROR: Error: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in 'engoffice/application/functions.php' on line 484 (error code: 2)
#2 ERROR: Error: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in 'engoffice/application/functions.php' on line 484 (error code: 2)
#3 ERROR: Error: Use of undefined constant JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK - assumed 'JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK' in 'engoffice/application/layouts/website.php' on line 535 (error code: 8)

Time since start: 60.226398944855 seconds

The referring codepart is

reloadDimensions: <?php echo json_encode( DimensionMemberAssociations::instance()->getDimensionsToReloadByObjectType($dimension->getId()), JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK ); ?>

Now have a look at you servers php Version.
JSON_NUMERIC_CHECK is only supported from PHP 5.3.3 on.
Fengoffice > 2.7 (in my case will not work on a Server below 5.3.3.
You will have to ask your provider for an update.

So Please FO-Team correct your Readme_Release_Notes Recommendations: to "PHP 5.3+"

Best SIM.

Installation problems / Re: No content after installation

Sadly i can not add anything constructive to this topic because i have the same problem: Installed 3.0 beta to 3.1.1 and no contents. :-[
I guess it has something to do with missing dimensions or so ... an now you tell me i have to run Feng on a server with root access to restart apache and fixed RAM. Sorry but we live in the world of virtualization, shared enviromentsand ressources so that will not work out. I pay for my webserver an there are some decent scripts running, for example an oxwall and thats no small thing.

Now to  Feng which i really really appreciate for its functionality and intelligent options for task management even in the community version from 1.5 on:
FO 1.7.5 was running very well on my server.
FO is running OK at the moment allthough there were this core dimensions things at the beginning as well
But now FO 3.x (at the moment trying 3.1.1) is absolute doing nothing on my place. It installs ok and then it loads for hours until it shows the same like my forespeakers: nothing. Well i will keep updating :-)

Don´t missunderstand: Feng still has a really great concept in task an project handling and that is why i spend the time to write this, but at the moment it is going astray least what the community version is all about.

Feng Office 2 / Re: 2.6.1 Email attachement
« on: June 18, 2014, 03:56:00 am »
Hi kompresja,
I just checked with my installation of FO 2.6.1 using firefox. Selecting an attachment from PC uploading and adding worked fine.
Guess the cause of your issue might be local. So this would be the first thing to look at if you haven´t done this already.
To make sure and narrow in, check and clean the browser cache, try another browser or even try another PC.

MySQL Syntax for adding the new field should be:

ALTER TABLE `fo_mail_accounts` ADD `mark_read_on_server` int(11) NOT NULL DEFAULT 0 AFTER `del_from_server`

Remember: Backup all databases and files before changing anything

Same issue on my Community Edition of Feng Office which has been upgraded from 1.7.5 via 2.5 to 2.6 beta now.
Maybe that´s the reason for the missing field: 'mark_read_on_server'

Info Messages in FO can be:
1. cannot read property 'length' of undefined or
2. cannot read property 'add' of undefined

Error Message in /cache/log.php reads:
#1 DEBUG: SQL ERROR: Query failed with message 'Unknown column 'mark_read_on_server' in 'field list'' - SELECT `id`, `contact_id`, `name`, `email`, `email_addr`, `password`, `server`, `smtp_server`, `is_imap`, `incoming_ssl`, `incoming_ssl_port`, `smtp_port`, `smtp_use_auth`, `smtp_username`, `smtp_password`, `del_from_server`, `mark_read_on_server`, `outgoing_transport_type`, `last_checked`, `is_default`, `signature`, `sender_name`, `last_error_date`, `last_error_msg`, `sync_addr`, `sync_server`, `sync_pass`, `sync_ssl`, `sync_ssl_port`, `sync_folder`, `member_id` FROM `fo_mail_accounts` WHERE `id` = '1'

@aSeptik: Fix worked for me! Thank you!

Getting Started / Re: Module Permissions Problem
« on: April 02, 2014, 06:03:00 pm »
Same issue here with me.
Feng Set up 2 users as superadmins with 2.5 OK but now new users have no Module Rights.
Anybody else so we can open a bug in the mantis list?
Anyway: Created Bug Report in Feng Mantis 0004116

One should read before write :-)
Same point here
We have to wait for 2.6
Or implement Fix:
in /application/helpers/permissions.php.

Feng Office 2 / Re: Administration Email-Accounts missing
« on: July 01, 2012, 03:29:21 pm »
Francesco, you did not offend me. Perhaps i did, when i wrote the advice not to upgrade to v2. Sorry about that.
Maybe it´s because developers sometimes can not imagine how important a feature can become to a "community customer" that they themselves consider perhaps in the beginning just to be a "nice to have". And the other way, that a feature the developers and their "real business customers" consider to be very important like the evolution from category to dimension can be an interesting but not yet cruical thing to the "community customer" who would be glad if his user would use simple categories in a producitve way ;-).
All the best... and i´ll stay with the 1.7.5

Feng Office 2 / Re: Administration Email-Accounts missing
« on: June 29, 2012, 07:25:44 am »
Yes it is. But i get the feeling that there are not to much people working with a "shared" Mail-Account, means working in a collaborative service oriented group :-). Otherwise there would have been more complaining about.

feng 1.7.5 works as very flexible and powerful collaborative project and task tool and i guess its time for the developers to admit that v2 went into the wrong direction. Mobile Access and (ok that´s a very hard thing, but look at the way google docs is going) even offline usability would have been the rights features to aim at. Together with its very flexible and customer orientated approach feng has (or had??) a lot of potential. I hope development and community communication will improve in the future and find the right way.

So my advice: DO NOT migrate to V2 with a productive system.  (I wouldn´t do it even if i had commercial support!) Have a look at it (it looks nice allthough a little bit sewed together), play around, but do not even think of transfering a working business to feng 2.

Feng Office 2 / Administration Email-Accounts missing
« on: April 24, 2012, 07:46:39 pm »
Hi, First at all, thanks for all the work on feng office. I have a productive 1.7.5 running and it does its job quite well.

But now looking at, logged in as Super User  i am missing the E-Mail Account configuration option in Administration. Especially the Account Permissions to give users the permission to send mails with a common mail account like :.) ist missing. At least in my installation...

If i give it a try and use the same link in as in 1.7.5
Code: [Select] it just gives me
Code: [Select]
Fatal error: Class 'MailAccountUsers' not found in [...]office/application/views/administration/mail_accounts.php on line 39
Allthough some Mail-Account information is displayed in simple html.
So am i on the wrong track and has there been a basic change in mail configuraton,or am i just missing something.

My Feng 2.0 installation is from scratch, no update.

Best, sim.

[UPDATE] Bug 3908 "It is not possible to give rights to email-accounts/to view all email-accounts" in Mantis    reflects the same issue.

not our top priority right now.
