Merging users fail

Postby geirrosset » Wed Dec 19, 2012 2:17 am

I tried to merge some spam users into my admin account yesterday (OJS 2.4.1). It failed with the following message: DB Error: Table 'd15353.gifts' doesn't exist

Any ideas?

Hi Geir,

Yes, this is a bug -- the gifts table is not installed in the upgrade to 2.4.1. There is a patch available to fix this, here:


You should be able to install the patch and run the upgrade again, or else just create the table yourself. The merge users problem should solve itself then.
