Ticket: SQL Error on Upgrade

Status Resolved
Add-on / Version DataGrab 5.0.5
EE Version 7.2.17


Aug 16, 2023

On my local dev copy of our site, we have DataGrab 3.0.4 which appears to be functioning correctly (I can click through all options etc). I have installed DataGrab 5.0.5 alongside this version to upgrade in the way described in the docs but if I click on the installed DataGrab 5.0.5 (or cog + settings) I get the following error shown in the attached screenshot. I have tested using PHP 8 instead of 7.4 but the same error persists. Please can you help?

Do you have a column called import_status in the exp_datagrab table? Can you share a screenshot of the columns in your exp_datagrab table? Sounds like an update didn’t run.

Currently, I have the following in the exp_datagrab table

Well, that screenshot is cutting off some of the columns so I can’t tell what is there. The “Structure” tab would reveal them all.

Regardless, you might have to uninstall and re-install. Somewhere along the way an update wasn’t performed correctly, and the status column was supposed to have been added in a version a long, long time ago before I owned it.

Thanks Brian, yes it looks like there are quite a number of database fields missing on my version. I will uninstall and reinstall.
