When I try to continue editing a CiviMail email we get the following error after upgrading to 4.6.4 from 4.5.5.

CiviCRM_API3_Exception: "DB Error: no such field"

No such field errors after an upgrade are most commonly caused by not having run the DB upgrader.

  • For Drupal, visit ?q=civicrm/upgrade&reset=1 or civicrm/upgrade?reset=1
  • For WordPress, visit wp-admin/admin.php?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/upgrade&reset=1
  • For Joomla, visit /administrator/index.php?option=com_civicrm&task=civicrm/upgrade&reset=1

For full upgrade advice and various troubleshooting tips, refer to the upgrade documentation page for your CMS.

  • I ran the upgrade and it completed without errors.

    There's also a document on ensuring schema integrity on upgrades? The first step I'd take would be to compare the DB result of SELECT version FROM civicrm_domain against the version of the codebase you think is installed. If they don't match, you might have an incompletely upgraded codebase. Commented Jun 24, 2015 at 4:09
  • The version is 4.6.4 .

  • The databases match and I am not sure what I am doing with comparing the schema. I found this on GitHub but it is not setup for 4.6.4 github.com/progressivetech/civi-schema-harmonizer

  • I was able to get the schema harmonizer to work with some tinkering and the site is running well now.

I was able to use the GitHub project at github.com/progressivetech/civi-schema-harmonizer with some tinkering to make it work. I documented my tinkering in the issues for the git project.
