DocMoto server upgrades

N.B. Only applies to upgrading the DocMoto server - not new installations.

When updating the DocMoto server the serverConfig.config file in /var/opt/docmoto/settings will be overwritten.

This means any bespoke settings, such as code that enables the Sharing feature will be overwritten and replaced with default settings.

To ensure your bespoke settings are preserved define them in the serverConfig.overrides.prototype file in /var/opt/docmoto/settings then rename serverConfig.overrides.prototype to serverConfig.overrides. This will then replace the default settings and this file will not be overwritten on updating the server.

Bug fixes

  • Improved performance.

  • International date change. All users running a server 24th April and 9th August (build 10156 to 10386) will have the problem and need to upgrade both server and clients.

  • Resolved various crash reports.

Operating Systems

DocMoto now only supports OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), OS X 10.12 (Sierra) and OS X 10.13 (macOS High Sierra).

Known Issues

  • Dragging files into Apple Mail (El Capitan, Sierra & High Sierra) - Dragging files out of DocMoto directly into Apple Mail is not currently working. The issue appears to be due to a bug in the latest version of Mail. We have reported the bug to Apple. As a work around users will need to drag attachments from DocMoto onto the desktop, and drag them from there into Apple Mail. This issue only arises when trying to add a file as an attachment to an existing email. For creating new emails use the 'Mail as Attachment' feature within DocMoto, or drag a file out of DocMoto and drop it onto Mail's icon in the dock.

  • DocMoto web client - This note ONLY applies to customers running a DocMoto server AND the DocMoto web client.

    Upgrading to Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra & High Sierra will overwrite the php.ini and apache web server config files. This will prevent the DocMoto web client from working. To fix the issue requires editing the files as described in the "Setting up PHP" section of the following article.

  • iWorks13 files and Apple Mail - There is an issue sending iWork files (Pages, Numbers & Keynote) through Apple Mail. Recipients are unable to open these files.
