Upgrade 2.4.2 DB: ERROR

Postby keir » Tue Jul 16, 2013 3:12 pm

I am trying to upgrade from 2.3.8 to 2.4.2
and upgrading to a full install on a new machine.
I've copied the postgres database and user files, applied the 2.42 patches then run the command line script from the pkp installation

Code: Select all

php tools/upgrade.php upgrade

the last few lines of output from the crash are

[code: Installer Installer::installEmailTemplate]
[data: dbscripts/xml/upgrade/2.4.0_idupgrade_issues2.xml]
[data: dbscripts/xml/upgrade/2.4.0_idupgrade_articles2.xml]

[data: lib/pkp/xml/mutexData.xml]
[data: dbscripts/xml/upgrade/2.4.0_update.xml]
ERROR: Upgrade failed: DB: ERROR: column "setting_value" is of type text but expression is of type boolean
HINT: You will need to rewrite or cast the expression.

Would very much appreciate any suggestions how to fix this.

Hi keir,

I've fixed this bug and posted it as bug #8310 at http://pkp.sfu.ca/wiki/index.php?title=OJS_2.4.2_Recommended_Patches#Patches. Restore your DB from backup, apply the patch, and try the upgrade process again.

I applied the patch rebuilt the database and the upgrade went smoothly.

All the nice publications and icons are working well.

Thank you for your excellent help.
