How to help out

  1. try upgrading a database from an older version (pre 2009.1 beta2) and make sure all the invoices are still OK

Justin, thank you for your hard work.

Just upgraded and it looks and works great.

I have a couple issues with my data base. I have to manually change the table si_users to si_user (along with having to do some manual column changes) I would check the changes in but don't know where to start.

thanks for the info JOsh

what version were you upgrading from?

just might have to alter the upgrade code to fix this - theres a patch to change the table name - but if you upgraded from beta 2 might of been skipped - will review



JOsh Beauregard, 2009/03/17 12:38

It was beta 2 when upgrading I tend to do a dump of my db structure and diff it with the structure file that you included. and make my changes there. I will post a patch file next time.
