View Full Version : Unknown column evnt_cwd
17-08-04, 07:47 PM
I am using the cvs snapshot (http://dotproject.sourceforge.net/dotproject.tar.gz) from yesterday. Trying to update the description for an event gives : cevent: store failed, unknown column event_cwd in field list.

Did you check the db/upgrade_latest.sql to see if there are database changes required?

Ok. I've spent an hour researching and trying this. I think to get the above I need to download it from the cvs. Posts I've read are quite cloak and dagger about the cvs. For anyone else trying to figure this out see below.
When I try
cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot/dotproject login
it looks for a password.
Any help appreciated.
To get this far :
CVS instructions for dotProject at
You need a cvs client, for Windows, Install Tortoise CVS

Try just downloading the cvs snapshot by clicking the link in the menu on the left of this page. We don't support SourceForge's CVS system, you would need to post a question on their support channels for details, however I believe you can just press return on the password for anonymous entry.

I had no idea that db/upgrade_latest.sql referred to a directory in the cvs snapshot :-)

I did that. But when I try and add an event in the calendar I get :
Unknown column 'event_cwd' in 'field list'.
This only happens when show only on working days is checked.
I am brand new to dotproject, but have had good luck fixing bugs because of the generally easy to understand code/errors. This one screwed with me entirely too long today. The problem is, the upgrade_latest.sql script creates a column in the events table called events_cwd. What you must do to fix this is to edit your database and rename the column to event_cwd. This is what is throwing the error.
That's the second s/plural typo bug today :)
(see my other post to commit these two to cvs)
Now the only thing left I can't seem to get is the stupid outgoing mail to work.

Nice work Colby. I just tested it here and it works fine. Thanks, Tom.
