Upgrading from Geeklog 1.3.8rc2 to 1.3.8sr3 error

Mike Steder

Hello all,

I'm currently trying to update my Geeklog from a release candidate version of 1.3.8 to the most recent version.

After setting everything up and going to upgrade my database I recieved the following error:

Text Formatted Code
1060: Duplicate column name 'is_default'

This is especially weird because this occured on my first attempt to upgrade. I get the same error on previous attempts. I'm confused as to where I go from here to fix this.

any help would be greatly appreciated,

You don't need to update the database. All 1.3.8 versions from the Release Candidates up to the current version use the same database layout.

Database changes are usually indicated by a new version number, e.g. all 1.3.7 versions have the same layout, but it is different from the 1.3.8 versions.

bye, Dirk


I ran into this same issue. After I got this error I noticed that my site seems to be working as normal.

However, my question is --- should I be worried about anything in the database after attempting to upgrade it?

I have a backup --- just trying to determine if I need to be paranoid or not ...

If you already had a 1.3.8 db, you will be fine.
