I just upgraded to 1.9.3, and am getting the following error message when I try
to edit any file:
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the
software. The last attempted database query was:
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "Article::updateRedirectOn". MySQL returned error "1146:
Table 'wikiframe.wiki_redirect' doesn't exist (blog.the-frame.com)".
This is identical to a previous bug report, except that was on 1.9.0 and the
suggestion was to upgrade to 1.9.1. But the same thing is happening to me on
1.9.3. In addition, when I use the default skin (that looks like Wikipedia),
the alignment is all off: <a
I originally installed the WikiMedia software through the One-Click Install
option of my webhost, <a href="http:/www.dreamhost.com">Dreamhost</a>, and
upgraded through that as well. My knowledge of MySQL and databases in general
is pretty weak.
It sounds like you updated the software but didn't re-run the updater scripts.
See the file UPGRADE for directions.

Thanks, Brion and Rob. That fixed it, once I figured out how to run something
from the command line. ;) I didn't realize I needed to do that bit manually.
In case anybody else has the same issue when upgrading using Dreamhost, this
page on Dreamhost's wiki is helpful also:
