Upgrading from 1.2 to 1.11 fails with MySQL error
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: caluml

I am trying to upgrade from an old version to the latest.

The command line php update.php quits with Can't use command-line utils with in-place install yet, sorry.

Trying to upgrade over the web using config/index.php fails with the following error:

  • There are already MediaWiki tables in this database. Checking if updates are needed...

...hitcounter table already exists.
...querycache table already exists.
Creating objectcache table...Query "CREATE TABLE objectcache (
keyname varbinary(255) binary not null default '',
value mediumblob,
exptime datetime,
unique key (keyname),
key (exptime)
" failed with error code "You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'binary not null default '',
value mediumblob,

unique key (k' at line 2 (localhost)".

mysql-5.0.44, php-5.2.2, and mediawiki-1.11.0

Version: 1.11.x
Severity: normal

Event Timeline

bzimport raised the priority of this task from to Medium.Nov 21 2014, 10:00 PM
bzimport set Reference to bz11450.
bzimport added a subscriber: Unknown Object (MLST).

Fixed on trunk in r26116, REL1_11 in r26116.

As a workaround, remove that extra word "binary" from maintenance/archives/patch-objectcache.sql
