[resolved] missing columns/tables (3 posts)

    Hey

    So updated to the new 1.9 version today, from 1.7 I think, and a lot of data has gone missing and tables are missing columns which I assume where added in 1.8 - the rain, SC stuff and so on.

    Is there some db-install script missing or did I miss something?
    There was no note that something should be done before upgrading...

    Okay, this got solved.

    If any of you run in to this problem when updating just deactivate the plugin and then activate it again.

    Seems like it runs the table-installer when you activate it, no data was lost (but do a backup of the tables just in case)!

    Glad it's sorted.

    When WordPress upgrades a plugin, it is meant to deactivate, update the files, then re-activate, but often it fails to perform the deactivate/reactivate.

    This seems to happen more often with a bulk update.

    See http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/17833

    As you guessed, deactivating/reactivating adds the new database columns and sorts the issue out.
