6.11.2 update fails to update database schema.

Hello,

I was attempting to update to the latest version (6.11.2) and I ran into the same problem here (https://forums.b2evolution.net/database-schema-6-7-gg-6-11-2). When the installer initially ran it did not give any option for updating the database, only to either install a new version or update an existing version. At this point the installation has failed and there is no path forward. What is the solution?

Thank You.

Put back previous version (tell us exact version number so we can check) and wait for 6.11.3
thanks

@cjcatalano
Going to your site the first line is an error

Deprecated: __autoload() is deprecated, use spl_autoload_register() instead in /home/astrolog/public_html/blog/inc/_core/_class_loader.funcs.php on line 55

If you are happy to code try fixing the issue by copying the file to backup and modifying it as indicated.

Another alternative is to try a manual (ftp) upload.

However if you are not in a hurry respond to @fplanque with the version you are trying to upgrade from as there may be a fix for that version.

For you and @fplanque :: the screen shot shows the error and version number (6.9.6)

We replaced the entire directory with the backup (6.9.6) and restored the database from a backup using R1 SoftRestore in cPanel. The database seems to be problematic now as we get a different error message regarding tables not existing.

I believe the error is because we had to update our php version to 7.2 for other software on the site. But the database error is now a separate problem. There must have been a problem with the database before it was backed up.

Can you put php back to 5.6*

See
https://forums.b2evolution.net/6-9-5-won-t-load-as-expected
and
https://forums.b2evolution.net/installation-bug-in-local-pc-on-line-55
.So I downgraded to PHP 5.6 and voila, problem solved, hopefully without introducing other problems as well.

https://www.php.net/manual/en/function.autoload.php

So either edit the code at line 55 or use php 5.6 <7.2
