Hi
We have found a database anomaly with some database versions that cause a corrupted installation.
As a quick way to prevent users having problems there was a simple change to the jD3.9 installation to check for jD 3.2.70 which is not available yet!!!
Please see the note in
https://www.jdownloads.com/index.php/downloads/category/6-jdownloads.html
for the 3.9.4 release.
We believe the source of the problem has been identified and it is related to which version og MySQL or the MariaDB that a site is using.
More later

Colin

Hi!


So who have this problem (like me) have to wait the release of the 3.2.70 and than upgrade to 3.9?
Or we hava no chance to migrate and we have to redo all the stuff from scratch? :'(

I have the same issue.
I see, in this URL (https://www.jdownloads.com/index.php/downloads/category/6-jdownloads.html), the request to not update yet.
Waiting for solution, I am sure you will be successful in resolving the issue. 8)

Hi belini,
we need a few users which want to test the upgrade from 3.2.x.
When you are interested to try it send me a short PM.
This means also that every other user can contact me.
Thanks.

Best Regards / Gruß

Hi,
you are welcome. You can find the current pre-release here:
http://www.jdownloads.com/forum/index.php?topic=12128.0

But we have in the last night get two results that not all bugs are really fixed (for users which use older MySQL versions).
I work on it today and need later again some test users.

All testers should be the possibility to try an upgrade from the old version 3.2.69.
Thanks.

Hi
Thanks :)   This helps us confirm that the 'challenge' is with the earlier versions of MySQL
Think we have to make a decision about checking level of MySQL and other databases like MariaDB so as not to hold up all users.

after my success yesterday i wanted to try it on the productive server and failed with the following error:
1054 Unknown column 'file_id' in 'field list'

after updating the page, however, everything was OK, the downloads also work. MySQL-Version on the Productive Server is 5.7.25

Hi
One of the data base modifications is to change'file_id' to 'id' to be compliant with Joomla! usage.

Just for clarity did you just refresh the page?  By say clearing the cache or going to another page and the returning?I ask because if the page was already open when you updated it would still have jD3.2 code in it and that would explain the your observation.
If that does turn out to be the situation I will add a note to the documentation.
Thanks
Colin

exactly, I just reloaded the page. the page was opened in a different tab during the update.

Ich kann in deutsch nochmal genau ausführen wie das Update abgelaufen ist:
Das Update wurde mit der besagten Fehlermeldung beendet, daraufhin habe ich den Tab mit der Webseite geöffnet und mit F5 aktualisiert, die Seite war daraufhin weiß. Nach nochmaligem aktualisieren wurde die Seite wieder normal geladen. Im Backend das gleiche, es war nur das Menü zu sehen und nach F5 war auch das Backend zu sehen.

In my history I can just see that on August 13th, 2020 I updated version 3.2.68 (installed on May 25th, 2020) directly to v3.9.1 for a customer without problems.
