[SOLVED] MAUTIC ERROR: The site is currently offline due to encountering an error. If the problem persists, please contact the system administrator. System administrators, check server logs for errors

In performing an upgrade for mautic, you can run into this error. To fix it do the following

sudo su –
cd /home/user
chown -R www-data ./public-html/
systemctl restart apache2.service

Now close and reopen your browser. Nagigate back to mautic and it will be fine


Quick how-to on the way I upgraded mautic, since upgrading through the web breaks my installations every time.

Login into your Virtualmin

Backup all of your virtual servers

Download the backups to your pc

Open Putty

SSH to Server

sudo su –

cd to your mautic directory (/home/user/html)

php bin/console mautic:update:find

php bin/console mautic:update:apply

php bin/console mautic:update:apply –finish

Open your mautic installation, refresh the web page, check the bottom right, and you will see the latest version. In my case it is 4.4.8
