[Resolved] missing columns/tables

  • 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.
