In Topic: Hot Deals

21 September 2009 - 01:48 AM

I have Hot Deals enabled and in the central position. Getting an error message (have submitted to Bug Tracker about that). But my question is even more basic--what exactly does "Hot Deals" do, when it's working? The user manual doesn't shed much light on it. It seems to pick up products automatically--but which products?

In Topic: Have You Successfully Upgraded to 2.0.7?

missing from your pool "no and I'm having a hell of a time fixing or trying to upgrade"

Yes, I noticed that option is not on the poll. 2.07 has been a huge headache. Fortunately I'm testing it on a local server. Going to try rolling back to 2.06.

In Topic: Question about the DB upgrade.

Tried it on a local server. It didn't time out this time, but it read, "Changing database structure," then gave me these errors:

Database error: Table 'gardenart.cscart_common_descriptions' doesn't exist (1146)
Invalid query: ALTER TABLE `cscart_common_descriptions` CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8;

Have copied this to the support desk as well.

Same problem here. After quite a while, I get an error saying "Mysql server has gone away." Basically, it's timing out because the upgrade is taking too long...maybe because of the images being in the DB?

In Topic: moving to 2.0.4

Yes, that is the safest way to upgrade. There are enough significant changes to v2.0 that trying to migrate items from old database tables to the new ones can be a headache (I speak from experience :| ).

If you have fairly heavily customized templates (as I do), you will need to make changes to them. Some of the files have been reorganized into different directories, and the Smarty code has changed here and there.
