Forum OpenACS Q&A: Re: 4.6 upgrade questions

It's probably something I overlooked when writing my pg-migration document.

user_col_comments is defined in packages/acs-kernel/sql/postgresql/postgresql.sql which you should have loaded before starting the migration (as per the migration doc).

So you should get an error, but the error should be that that view is already defined. If you're getting a different error, perhaps you forgot to load the postgresql.sql file.

Sorry to keep pestering.

Here's my error: psql:media-7.1.dmp:752: ERROR:  No such attribute or function 'oid'

I did indeed load postgresql.sql.

When you do:

grep ERROR errors.log | grep -v "already exists"

do you really only get three errors?

I get four:

psql:media-7.1.dmp:752: ERROR:  No such attribute or function 'oid'
psql:media-7.1.dmp:4690: ERROR:  parser: parse error at or near "SELECT"
psql:media-7.1.dmp:4698: ERROR:  parser: parse error at or near "SELECT"
psql:media-7.1.dmp:21336: ERROR:  Relation "party_approved_member_map" does not exist

Here is how I did my stuff.  I have PG 7.1 running on the usual port and PG 7.2 running on port 5424.  I rely on PGPORT to specify the port.  /web/med_dev is the OACS 4.6 tree.  My "media" database and site is OACS 4.5.
