XF 1.1 Upgrade failing


Well-known member
I'm upgrading my localhost install which is running 1.1.3 and the upgrade is failing with this error message:

Mysqli statement execute error : Field 'property_group_id' doesn't have a default value

Thanks for any pointers. :)

I think there might be more records there than is being shown...

If Brogan is on the right track - and I have no idea what else it could be - then this query might reveal a record without a group_id number:

SELECT * FROM xf_style_property_group WHERE property_group_id = NULL

SELECT * FROM xf_style_property_group WHERE property_group_id = ''

SELECT * FROM xf_style_property_group WHERE property_group_id = 0

Thanks Chris and Paul, I'll do some more digging. All else fails, I'll wipe the DB and do a clean install...it was just phantom data from an old install that I used simply for convenience.

Mysqli statement execute error : Field 'property_group_id' doesn't have a default value
This error would seem to indicate that xf_style_property_group.property_group_id is missing the AUTO_INCREMENT attribute. Did you recently perform any db maintenance such as restoring a backup or changing servers? Corruption may have occurred during such maintenance. If you can revert or reinstall that should fix it.

Or you can try running this query to restore the primary key:

ALTER TABLE xf_style_property_group CHANGE property_group_id property_group_id INT UNSIGNED NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT PRIMARY KEY;
Otherwise I can take a look if you give me access.
