I updated a Magento to and at first glance everything looks fine, no errors thrown so far.

I followed the instructions described here: https://magento.stackexchange.com/a/25156

But now every page is being redirected to the homepage. Even if I delete the .htaccess file and prefix the url path after the tld with an index.php.

The database is still in the same state as before the update. I changed the base URLs to http://localhost/ in the db and deleted the whole var/cache directory.

Needless to say, I'm doing the update locally first. What could cause this behaviour? Thanks for your help!

  • system->configuration->Web->Url Options->Auto-redirect to Base URL set that to No – Nickool Oct 14 '16 at 20:54
  • The problem is that I can reach the admin login page but after logging in I get redirected to the homepage. So I can't edit the backend. I think I have to make the changes to the db directly. But I don't know where. – citizen404 Oct 14 '16 at 20:58
  • core_config_data table, what do you have as your base url? – Nickool Oct 14 '16 at 20:59
  • also truncate your core_url_rewrite and do a --reindexall , flush the cache and see if that helps – Nickool Oct 14 '16 at 21:04
  • base url is localhost. How can I do a reindexall when I'm not able to reach the admin panel? – citizen404 Oct 14 '16 at 21:14

I did some debugging and recognized that there was some strange behaviour regarding the sessions. They were already expired just when they were created.

And then I recieved an email from the Magento team which states that there are several issues with the latest release of Magento CE. Looking at the last point in the list, I noticed that it is a bug in the core of the update. So I followed the advice of the Magento team and refused the update and installed combined with the latest security patch SUPEE-8788 instead.

Now everything works as expected.

Several issues with our most recent Community Edition 1.9.3 release have been reported. Some affect functionality critical to store operations and we are working on a new release (Community Edition that is tentatively scheduled for the end of next week. Magento is aware of the following issues:

  • Search results return all store product
  • Some integrations using Magento APIs no longer work
  • Bundled product prices do not update
  • Store-specific attribute labels disappear
  • Auto generated passwords do not work for some customers
  • Exceptions appear for stores with disabled breadcrumbs
  • Free shipping sales rules are not calculated correctly
  • PHP warnings occur with the session timestamp variable

We recommend that you wait to upgrade to Community Edition 1.9.3 and instead apply the latest security patch, SUPEE-8788, which does not have these issues.

If you have already upgraded, are experiencing issues, and cannot wait for the new release, the Magento community has created a module that resolves the issues outlined above. It can be found at https://github.com/digitalpianism/bugfixes. Magento has not tested this module. If you decide to use it, we recommend you remove the community module and upgrade to Enterprise Edition as soon as it is available.
