Hi,

I just upgraded a site running 1.6.9 to the latest version of 2.4 downloaded today.

Running on localhost the installer process worked fine with no errors.

However, running live, I got the following two errors:

This one during the upgrade to 2.0.2.

Error Number: 1091
Can’t DROP ‘show_url_title’; check that column/key exists
ALTER TABLE `exp_channels` DROP COLUMN `show_url_title`
Filename: updates/ud_202.php
Line Number: 165

Then…

A Database Error Occurred
Error Number: 1054
Unknown column ‘wm_x_offset’ in ‘exp_file_watermarks’
ALTER TABLE `exp_file_watermarks` CHANGE `wm_x_offset` `wm_hor_offset` int
Filename: updates/ud_240.php
Line Number: 83

After the first, refreshing the installer URL made the installer carry on without an issue until it ran into the second error, and refreshing after that one completed the install.

I was able to do the necessary upgrades to add ons etc afterwards and everything appears fine, however given a search of the forum reveals these have happened to others but without obvious resolutions, I thought I would post.

Standard lamp setup. Matrix was the only add on I had running, other than a few plugins (trunchtml, low seg2cat etc). Forums were once installed but since removed. No wiki etc, or MSN.

This was my pre upgrade config:

<?php

if ( ! defined('EXT')){
exit('Invalid file request');
}

$conf['app_version'] = "169";
$conf['license_number'] = "";
$conf['debug'] = "1";
$conf['install_lock'] = "1";
$conf['db_hostname'] = "localhost";
$conf['db_username'] = "dba";
$conf['db_password'] = "pass";
$conf['db_name'] = "ee";
$conf['db_type'] = "mysql";
$conf['db_prefix'] = "exp";
$conf['db_conntype'] = "0";
$conf['system_folder'] = "secret_admin";
$conf['cp_url'] = "http://www.domain.com/secret_admin/index.php";
$conf['doc_url'] = "http://expressionengine.com/docs/";
$conf['cookie_prefix'] = "";
$conf['is_system_on'] = "y";
$conf['allow_extensions'] = "y";
$conf['multiple_sites_enabled'] = "n";
$conf['enable_online_user_tracking'] = "n";
$conf['enable_hit_tracking'] = "n";
$conf['enable_entry_view_tracking'] = "n";
$conf['dynamic_tracking_disabling'] = "";
?>

Hi Daniel,

If you were able to refresh the installer and proceed without error, then you should be in good shape.

The updater/installer is a bit dim, and sometimes tries to run updates that have been applied.

To put your mind at ease, look into the tables that are noted in the errors. exp_channels should be missing the show_url_title column and exp_file_watermarks should have wm_hor_offset.

Let me know what shakes out.

Cheers,

Thanks Dan smile

I can confirm the tables are as they should be.
