    Errors after installing and uninstalling a plug-in

    This was a vanilla production database (3 weeks old, no custom installs, and I had only ever installed one plug in and then uninstalled it)

    The error I get from the server logs is:
    Mysqli statement execute error : Duplicate entry '1-Search' for key 'language_id_title'

    I've searched the information schema, and found
    WHERE 'CONSTRAINT_NAME' = 'language_id_title'

    Returned 2 columns on the same table:

    table : Column
    xf_phrase_map : language_id
    xf_phrase_map : title

    But this table is empty

    I'm not sure whats going on here yet.. any ideas? It sounds like its trying to insert "1-Search" twice, I cant see why yet..

    Some info from looking in the DB, possible reasons????

    1. in the table xf_admin_template_phrase
    I have 2 rows with the value "search"
    id 834 and id 1076, could either of these be causing this?

    I think I'm getting close to finding my issue.

    When I look at my phrases, it looks blank. When I try to create a new language, I get the error above.

    What I am guessing has happend is that I've renamed a template to "search" which was already existing => bang

    edit, yup I found these two lines in the xf_phrase table:

    21512 0 search Search 0 XenForo 1000015 1.0.0 Alpha 5
    22998 1 Search Search 0 XenForo 1000470 1.0.4

    (somehow a duplicate has been allowed in since its a lower case)

    I edited the 2nd line (Search Search , and changed it to 2Search Search), this allowed me into the ACP phrase area. I could then revert any changes I had made to my phrases...

    Well, I hope this helps someone?

    (don't change the phrases into lower/upper case versions of their selves, this results in a duplicate value for the language_id_title index later down the line)

    While it's still possible for this to happen, I have a simple workaround that should make it much easier to prevent. If someone wants to trigger this via a hand rolled XML file they probably can, but I don't think it should come up.
