Connections theme reverts to 4.5 after applying C5 CR1

Just a quick post. I ran into this issue, and it’s not the first time I’ve seen it.

After applying the CR1 update to Connections 5, the theme reverted to version 4.5.

I made sure that all nodes were synced, restarted environment and the same issue was experienced.

The Fix

I removed the temporary caching directory for the WebSphere Server running Connections.

This forces WAS to update it’s cache on next restart.

  1. Shut down the Application server running Connections.
  2. Go to the <install_root>/profiles/<servername> directory
  3. Rename the /temp directory to /old_temp (as below.)
  4. Rename the /wstemp directory to /old_wstemp (as below)
  5. Restart Application Server.

Once testing is completed, you can remove the old temp directories.
