Upgrading a CiviCRM DB from 4.7.17 to 4.7.29 after moving from MySQL 5.1 (CentOS 6 install) to CentOS 7 with MariaDB 10.2. After the progress bar completes on the wp-admin/admin.php?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/upgrade&reset=1 page, then I get an error:

If I remove the () from the middle of the SQL statement: ALTER TABLE civicrm.log_civicrm_activity ADD modified_date timestamp NULL () ON UPDATE current_timestamp() COMMENT 'When was the activity (or closely related entity) was created or modified or deleted.' And do: ALTER TABLE civicrm.log_civicrm_activity ADD modified_date timestamp NULL ON UPDATE current_timestamp() COMMENT 'When was the activity (or closely related entity) was created or modified or deleted.' It adds to the DB. However, a subsequent run of the upgrade process then tries to Modify the column and ends in essentially the same error at the same spot. Anyone else run into this? Is this a bug or problem with my install?

I have ran into this issue as well. Initially I wasn't sure if it was because I use multi-lingual (which adds some complexity) or because of MariaDB 10.2.

I had initially patched my version of CiviCRM to remove those empty ():

diff --git a/sites/all/modules/civicrm/CRM/Logging/Schema.php b/sites/all/modules/civicrm/CRM/Logging/Schema.php
index b3480601..e3a5d285 100644

+++ b/sites/all/modules/civicrm/CRM/Logging/Schema.php
@@ -489,6 +489,7 @@ AND    (TABLE_NAME LIKE 'log_civicrm_%' $nonStandardTableNameString )
     $query = str_ireplace("DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP ON UPDATE  CURRENT_TIMESTAMP", '', $query);
     $query = str_ireplace("DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP", '', $query);
     $query = str_ireplace("NOT NULL", '', $query);
+    $query = str_ireplace('()', ' ', $query);
     return $query;
   }

However, looking at civicrm_contact, for example, I see default current_timestamp(), so the above replacements are causing the empty ().

It should probably something like this?

 $query = preg_replace("/DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP(\(\))/", '', $query);
  • This is also somewhat relevant: stackoverflow.com/questions/44722541/… "All versions of MariaDB from 5.5 through 10.2 and all MySQL from 5.5 to 5.7 accept current_timestamp() syntax as default value for a timestamp column." – bgm Jan 19 '18 at 19:57
  • I'm also utilizing mulit-lingual. I don't think current_timestamp() is the problem. According to the docs current_timestamp and current_timestamp() are "symlinked" to Now(). However, your added line also changes NULL () ON UPDATE to NULL ON UPDATE. That's where the problem seems to lie. So from what I see it seems that your solution works, but not because of what you expected. Why is there () after the NULL? – G H Jan 19 '18 at 20:07
  • CiviCRM asks the database to output a table schema, in order to build the log table. If MariaDB outputs modified_date timestamp NULL DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP() or modified_date timestamp NULL DEFAULT DEFAULT CURRENT_TIMESTAMP() ON UPDATE CURRENT_TIMESTAMP, the str_ireplace from CiviCRM will convert it to: modified_date timestamp NULL (). The code just didn't expect those parenthesis, so they are not removed. My initial patch focuses on the parenthesis, but a better patch would probably be to have a regexp conditionally looking for those parenthesis? – bgm Jan 19 '18 at 20:20
  • Ah! Now I see. So, it's simply leaving the () from the initial call. I think what you suggest should work, or perhaps above the first shown line adding: $query = str_ireplace("CURRENT_TIMESTAMP()", 'CURRENT_TIMESTAMP', $query); – G H Jan 19 '18 at 20:31
  • Both edits seems to work fine. (After fixing the trailing slash.) Adding another str_ireplace command keeps the code uniform in that section, but utilizing preg_replace decreases code length. – G H Jan 19 '18 at 21:17
