unable to update was created by Adam Yared

i'm unable to update to version 9.16.1 from version 9.14.0. I've tried all methods listed in this page:

and keep getting this error:

I've been able to update before..

Also i am seeing 19 database problems in the Extensions > database page. I'm assuming these will resolve when i update?

Any ideas?

Hi Adam, I am no expert but can I ask, did you try emptying the temp directory via backend-tools.

Just a shot in the dark.

Good luck

Thanks Ally!

Im going to have to wait to try this, the update evidently broke some functionality and i had to role it al back.

It's not a problem in Jomres. The error is from L165 which uses Joomla's built-in filesystem code to move files.

The most likely cause is that your Jomres files are owned by a different user, not the web server's user and/or their permissions don't allow them to be overwritten.

Do not send me PMs, if you need to contact me use the ticket system.
Read this before you customise Jomres files

Thanks Vince, i reset file and directory permissions on all files, manually cleared out the /tmp folder (was getting "Something went wrong trying to cleanup jomres temp files" error and have been able to run the update.

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
