Description Rick 2007-09-27 06:59:29 UTC
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 "LocalFile::loadFromDB". MySQL returned error "1054: Unknown column 'img_sha1' in 'field list' (localhost)".

This bug was reported when attempting to view any page with an imbedded image.
I would like to fix it if possible, however Im unsure specifically what has caused it.

You haven't run the requisite database upgrades. At a command line, type php maintenance/update.php.

Please direct any further inquiries to the MediaWiki IRC channel (#mediawiki on or mailing list (
