Issues after 2.3.4-Release (i386) Upgrade
So over the weekend I needed to upgrade a rather older (but stable) install of 2.0.n on a Soekris Net4801.
Used the Auto Upgrade, which downloaded, then "installed" then Rebooted – an NOTHING --
Connected to the Serial Console and realized I had not system.
Did a reboot and watched it upgrade / install the unit this time..
Took a second reboot to get it to the "installed" state. But I have had all sort of issues from stability to the "502 Bad Gateway" NGIX screen..
After I took the IPSec off the Status screen as suggested here it's better, although it seems to be in a Checking for update loop. Spining Star --
Also, at least once had to restart service PHP-FPM (16) to get the console back.
Don't think I have had this many concerns / problems in many many years of using pfSense.... So I am looking for some basic guidance on settings / steps to get stable. An recommended steps to get my two IPSec tunnels up, and get NGIX to be at least somewhat responsive. It seems to hang when I try and update the tunnel configs..
--TIA -- an no I really do not want to by a new box at this time..
Frankly, the minimum hardware requirements for 2.3.x have outgrown that box, and it isn't capable of running 2.4 at all.
If you start from a freshly imaged CF and restore your configuration it may run, but you'll need to watch what features you have enabled carefully, and probably not have any packages.
