Forum .LRN Q&A: PG ERROR: 'CURRENT' is no longer supported

I get the following error when trying to install the simulation package on the 5.0 branch. I see there have been a lot of changes in acs-content-repository lately but I'm not sure that is related. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

Peter,

I don't think any changes to the content repository have occured for OpenACS 5.0. I changed some things on HEAD but I did not change content_folder__new at all.

I do see that 'current_timestamp' is in single quotes. Is that the correct way to pass that in to a timestamp datatype? Normally I see that unquoted.

Which version of Postgresql are you using?

We need to use 'now', not 'current_timestamp', which the time parser no longer recognizes.

Note that current_timestamp, the variable not the quoted string, does of course work.

I ran into this myself yesterday and have fixed it on head.

The problem has to do with the way define_function_args is written - it quotes the default values (or passes them as :tclvars to the driver, which does the quoting, not sure which).  In retrospect it would be best if define_function_args didn't do that but it's not worth changing at this point.

I guess this needs fixing for 5.0.1 too?  Changing "creation_date;current_timestamp" to "creation_date;now", that is, in calls to define_function_args.

Sigh ... all these near-silent changes the PG group makes bite us in the ass, don't they? :)
