Problem When Trying to send Inventory

I have a fresh installation of the last version of OCS on a centos server.

I have a windows 7 pc with OCS Agent installed. Nothing append when I launch inventory. I can't see the computer on OCS reports.

In the Agent logs i can see :

COM SERVER => Sending HTTP Post request to URL <http://ocs-srv.dagimport.com/ocsinventory>

COM SERVER => HTTP Post response received <HTTP Status Code #500>

COM SERVER => Cleaning cURL library

ERROR *** AGENT => Failed to send Inventory <HTTP Status Code #500>

AGENT =>  Communication Server ask for Package Download

DOWNLOAD => Package history file successfully cleaned for duplicate IDs

DOWNLOAD => Download disabled by server

I check my mysql server configuration and evrything is ok :

<IfModule mod_perl.c>

  # Which version of mod_perl we are using
  # For mod_perl <= 1.999_21, replace 2 by 1
  # For mod_perl > 1.999_21, replace 2 by 2

  # Master Database settings
  # Replace localhost by hostname or ip of MySQL server for WRITE
  PerlSetEnv OCS_DB_HOST localhost
  # Replace 3306 by port where running MySQL server, generally 3306
  PerlSetEnv OCS_DB_PORT 3306
  # Name of database
  PerlSetEnv OCS_DB_NAME ocsweb
  PerlSetEnv OCS_DB_LOCAL ocsweb
  # User allowed to connect to database
  PerlSetEnv OCS_DB_USER ocs
  # Password for user
  PerlSetVar OCS_DB_PWD test

Here is my apache error.log : - - [26/Jul/2017:20:52:08 +0200] "GET /ocsinventory/deploy/label HTTP/1.1" 400 226 "-" "OCS-NG_WINDOWS_AGENT_v2.0.5.0" - - [26/Jul/2017:20:52:09 +0200] "POST /ocsinventory HTTP/1.1" 200 234 "-" "OCS-NG_WINDOWS_AGENT_v2.0.5.0" - - [26/Jul/2017:20:52:32 +0200] "POST /ocsinventory HTTP/1.1" 500 527 "-" "OCS-NG_WINDOWS_AGENT_v2.0.5.0" - - [26/Jul/2017:20:53:27 +0200] "GET /ocsinventory/deploy/label HTTP/1.1" 400 226 "-" "OCS-NG_WINDOWS_AGENT_v2.0.5.0" - - [26/Jul/2017:20:53:27 +0200] "POST /ocsinventory HTTP/1.1" 200 234 "-" "OCS-NG_WINDOWS_AGENT_v2.0.5.0" - - [26/Jul/2017:20:53:49 +0200] "POST /ocsinventory HTTP/1.1" 500 527 "-" "OCS-NG_WINDOWS_AGENT_v2.0.5.0"

To sum up what i want to do :

I have an old Centos 5 server with OCS 2.0 RC4. I want to transfer it on a new Centos 7 server.

I have a working Centos 7 server to do this and inventory work from a test Windows PC (SSL activated).

Here is what i have done :

-Upgrading ocs server on the old server (encountering a lot of problem because centos 5 isn't supported anymore). The old server is working with inventory ok (No SSL).

-I have exported SQL database to a file :

mysqldump -u root -p ocsweb > ocs-database-save.sql

-I have imported the export file in the database of the newserver.

Everything seems to be ok, I have all my inventory available on the the server but if I try an inventory now it fail (error 500). I really don't understand. My test PC inventory worked fine just before the upgrade and without changing anything it doesn't work anymore.

Please tell me WHERE I can find the ocs logs. I just want to know where are the logs to know what is wrong.

I don't want to install again my server : it works juste before importing. Please just tell me where I can find this log file. I can't see any error in apache log file.

I suggest you to update your old server to 2.3.1 then backup the database and finally import dump into new server.

To update old server follow this procedure : 2.0rc4 -> last 2.1 -> last 2.2 -> 2.3.1. if you don't follow this procedure you'll encounter problems because tables aren't be corrected (columns missed for certains tables, missed tables and updated application files).

Everything work!!!!!!!!!!

After a lot of problems (no more repository for centos 5, no requiered PHP 5.4 version on centos 5,etc...) it works!

So the solution is 2.0rc4 -> last 2.1 -> last 2.2 -> 2.3.1

Do you know how I can ask to add this on offcial documentation? I really don't understand why this is not explained in it.... definitely I don't understand...
