I've just updated EE to 2.5.5 only to find that matrix images aren't showing. Apparently I need to update matrix from 2.1.2 to 2.5.3 to solve this, but when I do all of the site's pages go blank. Any idea how to solve this?

  • Hey ninjachicken1 - I'm sorry I missed this! Do you have this in a dev environment where you can upgrade to 2.5.3 and we can troubleshoot without impacting your live site?

  • I think you actually solved this when I contacted you through support - pretty sure you said it was a ghost issue. May 14, 2013 at 12:42
  • Aha, so you're up and running then? Excellent. Thank you!

You probably have to trigger Matrix's update script. Go to Add-OnsFieldtypesMatrix and it'll run automatically.

If that doesn't work, try turning on error messages for admins and see if that gives you some hints. In system/expressionengine/config/config.php, put $config['debug'] = "1";

  • Already done the first part, but thanks for telling me about the config file. I'd tried that yesterday and thought the site was broken. Apr 4, 2013 at 17:21
