I'm using php .3 and mysql 5.7.25-log. 

Manually running those 2 mysql commands and deleting the cache file, worked for me - FileRun now thinks it's version 2019.06.01. 

Thanks.

I don't have a "mysql_error.log" there. Here's my directory:

I'm getting the same result: nothing happens after "Updating database structure..." even after waiting 15 minutes. When I click "restart", FileRun thinks nothing has happened and asks me if I want to re-download the upgrade. If I refresh the web page, FileRun thinks nothing has happened and alerts me that there is an update.

I think the issues with FE File Explorer is that it will only make one server connection in the free version, and I am already using it for a server connection. In order to add another (WedDAV, in this case, or possibly ownCLoud), I'll need the free version. I'll look into this.

Good thinking: I'll look into WebDAV apps with "sync" options - good to know some exist!

  • Of, and WebDAV Nav (and presumably all WebDAV apps) also can't see any Collections (photo albums) from FileRun. Again, not a deal-breaker, but certainly not as nice as a better-integrated app.

Thanks for the suggestions!

  • ownCloud (1.0.1 build 124 (5f1b511)) on iOS 12.3.1 doesn't work: "Error; Server software Nextcloud 16.0.0.9 not supported."
  • WebDAV Nav does work! But it's pretty bare-bones regarding images (e.g., it doesn't seem to display images rotated per EXIF data, I can't configure it to auto-upload new images taken on phone's camera, it doesn't cache images (every time I view an image it has to re-download). But at least it works.
  • FE File Explorer: free version doesn't let me add ownCloud or WebDAV servers - I'll have to try the paid version
  • I'll look for other WebDAV apps, but I suspect that an app that talks to WebDAV servers will not be likely to have auto-upload-new-pics-from-camera features.

Thanks again

Can you please suggest an iOS client that does work with FileRun?

I'm getting this same error using the Nextcloud app on iOS, but the Nextcloud app on Android works fine.
