DB Error after upgrading to OJS 3.2.1.1

Hi,

I’ve upgraded to OJS version 3.2.1.1 and now I’m getting those errors on PostgreSQL logs:

A lot of these errors.

Hi @Tarcisio_Pereira,

OJS intentionally uses index collisions to determine whether an entry already exists for a controlled vocabulary – i.e. this is expected. Is there a way to configure PostgreSQL not to log these?

Hi @asmecher

Maybe something like this https://www.postgresql.org/docs/9.4/plpgsql-control-structures.html#PLPGSQL-ERROR-TRAPPING
It’s like a try catch on database.
I had never seen this applied to the database.

Regards,
Tarcisio Pereira

Dear Tarcisio / Dear @asmecher,

Did you solve this problem?
I am receiving this error, which is causing the Ojs-3.2.1.1 internal search to fail, there is an error to insert some entries, for example “keywords”, also other entries using the “Quick Submissions Plug-in”.
Can you share the resolution?
Tks

Hi @torres.

No. Its was a test installation. I did not upgraded yet.

Thanks Tarcisio,
I believe that the Alec Smecher @asmecher can guide us on how to resolve this issue. I have been using this version working reasonably well since July, but some interventions (like this one) appear and interventions are needed.
