[OJS] Error adding files to a submission galley


I recently updated to OJS version, an installation with MySQL setup. I tried to configure an article, and found an error when adding a file to a submission galley.

My PHP logs show

PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Exception: DB Error: Duplicate entry ‘59423-1187’ for key ‘submission_search_object_keywords_pkey’ Query: INSERT INTO submission_search_object_keywords (object_id, keyword_id, pos) VALUES (?, ?, ?)

Hi @jpcv222,

You can re-generate your search index by running:

php tools/rebuildSearchIndex.php

I suspect this will fix the immediate problem. But be cautious that you haven’t accidentally changed your character set configuration during the upgrade; are you having troubles with special (accented) characters? Is your config.inc.php character set configuration in the new installation the same as pre-upgrade? Is your database’s default character set UTF-8?

Hi @asmecher,

My default character set configuration was Latin 1. I modified manually the character set and collation (utf8 and utf8_general_ci respectively) from my database and some tables. At the moment there are no problems.

Thank you a lot!
