Ok, I went to .1.14.5 to see if that would make a difference. nope.
Here is the scope. originally started on version .1.14.2. Saw that version 1.14.4 was available. Downloaded the .zip package from the website. Unzipped the files on a Windows based computer. SFTP'd into the server and uploaded the new files into my own directory. Then used rsync -a to move the files into the web directory. realized that by the bug report and github that you were probably right that I messed up some files, so I did sudo rm -rf /upload and /scripts folders. Did another rysnc -a to move the files back to the web directory and re-create the proper folder structure. changed the ownership to be www-data since when I copied it it had me as the owner and group. downloaded the codes of the two new ajax files and copied them to the server deleted the old files and rsync'd them back into the folder to make sure it didnt mess anything up. Just in case it was keeping another copy of the files somehow.
edit--- I checked the php log files, and there are no errors. Its complaining about no MTA agent, but thats fine for my usage.
I was also seeing this in the apache logs.
PHP Warning: session_regenerate_id(): Cannot regenerate session id - session is not active in /var/www/Support/upload/open.php on line 52
PHP Warning: strtotime() expects parameter 1 to be string, object given in /var/www/Support/upload/include/class.lock.php on line 66
From some of the older versions I have seem where an upgrade shows up after you move the new files to the server and restart apache but I didnt seem to get an "upgrade" screen.
