Kirby Update Issue 2.3.1

In updating to the latest Kirby I ran into an issue when accessing the dashboard all I got was the warning below.

The widget does not exist at the specified path: /var/www/vhosts/

What happened was that OSX created ._ invisible files that transferred over when I FTP’d panel and kirby files. Kirby doesn’t like having any of those files in app/widgets folder. When I removed them Kirby worked again.

From which version did you upgrade?

It was from version 2.2.3

Thank you, I will look into this.

I have this happen when I transfer files from MacOS to a Samba share with a different file system. MacOS creates dot files to keep extra meta data or something that it can’t keep on a file system other than HFS+. In this situation the Samba share is on a Ext4 partition.

However the files got there, they shouldn’t cause this issue. :slight_smile:

It looks like I did not have those files in my version 2.2.3 widget folder, so the issue may extend beyond 2.3.1.
