Description faithx5 2007-03-18 03:21:21 UTC
I just upgraded to 1.9.3, and am getting the following error message when I try
to edit any file:

Database error
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 (".

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:/">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:
