Missing posts after database restore

Hi,

Until I can get the 5.1 series to run, I’m trying to retreat to
5.0.2, which had been working for me. I dropped my old db and
removed the install directory, created new of each, installed using
the gem/installer, stop mongrel, and get a clean restore of the
database (at least no complaints) and I can see all of the data in
both the yaml file and the database itself, but typo says, “No posts
found…” on the blog’s page and the admin interface agrees about no
posts. Usernames, passwords, categories, files, all work.

The only logged message is:

Before I attempted an upgrade I remove the sidebar plug-ins.

Any thoughts on how to convince typo that articles are there or where
to look next?

Thanks,

Did you do a rake db:migrate while trying to get 5.1 to work?

Did you point the db/database.yml to the right database?

Hello,

first, sorry for not replying faster, I was in holliday and got
internet access only tonight. Trying to answer the pile of mails
that’s waiting for me.

Can you use mysql / pgsql client and do
select * from contents;

What is the output ?

Can you also use
./script/console
Article.count(:all)

Thx
Cheers,
Frédéric

not a problem - I’m just returning to my pile of mails too, so sorry
for the delayed reply!

Contents is fully populated! Thank goodness. :slight_smile:

The last ID in the table is 62, and the contents_id_seq is at 63.
That looks pretty consistent.

Can you also use
./script/console
Article.count(:all)

hmmm:

Article.count(:all)
=> 0

yes. however I dropped that database and am trying to work with the
backup that was made before upgrading.

Oh, the yaml file that the backup makes.

yeah, that part seems fine. I’m getting my authentication, settings,
file uploads, etc.

I’m also getting a stacktrace, I now see. I’ll end this message with
the top of it - I can post more of it if it would be helpful:

OK, I think I figured out why this result is true. Restoring
from .yaml files sets the ‘type’ field of the Contents table to NULL,
even when the .yaml file contains Article as the type.

e.g.:

  • allow_pings: t
    updated_at: 2008-02-22 15:30:54.125274
    guid: d81ed114-dc11-423b-93da-0c71c771b4c7
    body: |-

    Thanks, Dad.

I tried restoring on postgresql and mysql, same result.

I lined up all the fields and only ‘type’ in this table has this
discrepancy.

So, I was able to get things running again with:

UPDATE Contents SET type=‘Article’;

And so far that looks good.

further follow-up: the ‘type’ field of Feedback isn’t restored either.

Since I have trackbacks turned off due to spam abuse (bummerz) I was
simply able to:

UPDATE Feedback SET type = ‘Comment’ ;

to get my comments back as well.
