I really hate posting another 1.3 to 1.7 upgrade thread, but I’ve spent days trying to get this work on a copy or our production store and it’s just killing me. I have been able to do a full complete upgrade to 1.7 on a stock 126.96.36.199 store, working through the numerous errors that are typically found to what I believe is a fully functional 1.7
I have been following this excellent guide making sure to upgrade the database through the command line.
A few things I’ve done in my upgrade workflow not mentioned in the article but I’ve seen elsewhere.
* Uninstall all plugins
* Since I’m on a MAMP environment I’ve made sure there are no quaranteen problems with the downloaded files using
* I’ve done a diff using FileMerge between Schema dumps from a stock 188.8.131.52 install and my production; there are no missing tables in my production db copy.
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine file-path
When upgrading the production copy I get two errors that I think are significant.
1. When upgrading to 1.4 I get
. After going through some of the code I decided to continue the upgrade process to 1.7. Re-examing the 1.7 code there are no references to the deprecated method so I’m assuming that I was right in continuing the upgrade. Am I correct?
User Notice: The method getLanguageTranslationList is deprecated. Use getTranslationList(’language’, en_US) instead in /Users/jonathanryan/Sites/promountainsports.com/lib/Zend/Locale.php on line 611
2. When upgrading from 1.4 to 1.7 and upgrading the database from the command line I get this: “base table or view already exists: 1050 Table ‘core_variable’ already exists” Based on some other threads the suggestion has been to rename the upgrade file listed in the error and to proceed. Inevitably though I get to a point where there is a non duplication error, such as “Column not found: 1054 Unknown column ‘additional_attribute_table’ in ‘field list’”.
When upgrading doing the db upgrades by the command line what could be the reasons for these errors and what is the correct way to work through this?
