Bug ID: 381386
Summary: Failed to update the database schema from version 7 to
Assignee: [hidden email] Reporter: [hidden email] Target Milestone: ---
I had Digikam (4.4 and earlier) use an external MySQL database (though marked
experimental)... and now I'm facing update problems. It does not work with
DigiKam 5.4 (from Kubuntu 17.04), and the problem seems to be the same with
DigiKam 5.6, started from digikam-5.6.0-01-x86-64.appimage.
Actually the AppImage seemed to introduce a new problem: it is trying to
connect to MySQL through /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock, although on Ubuntu the
socket is under /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock - I changed it for testing
I tried manual DB fixes also, as described in #373605. The commands found 23
problematic entries in 4 tables.
I can still start DigiKam 4.4 under Debian (old stable), but in there the
Database Migration dialogue does not work... so I wonder how I'm going to get
my database converted to the current DigiKam standard.
