I’m working on performing the update on two instances of OJS to the newest version. The first version will work with no issues, as it’s a fresh install with no data associated with it - it will serve as a rebuild to the second instance.
The second instance, for those that might remember seeing my name, is the one that had a failed update attempted to it when moving to 3.3.0-3. I ran through all the steps necessary to backup all the data (SQL data, documenting the installation files and creating a .TAR.GZ file of those installations, creating manually virtual backups of the server HDD) in order to restore where I was before performing the updates. Though I had these steps automated in the past, I no longer trust the rules to work, hence the situation I’m in.
When I attempt to perform the update on the failed database update from a previous installation, it returns the same error message I received before - 42S22. I’m restoring that database to how it was before but since that SQL database contains all of the tables with the prior data, I was hoping to somehow update it to restore it to the primary instance. I don’t know if that’s possible, hence this post.
@asmecher You were very helpful in working out what I might need to do moving forward previously - what steps would I need to take in order to perform this update?
