Downloaded the latest source but does not create the SiteSettings2PartRecord table. So I get error when accessing general settings.

I can't reproduce that. Did you upgrade all features?

There is no feature marked for upgrade. Although when i go to Updates Tab I get the error "Package retrieve error: The null value from property 'Published' cannot be assigned to a type 'System.DateTime'"

Previously was working on

Maybe you already upgraded to 1.x earlier, and the change as not updated the datamigration. You should then create the table manually.

Thanks for response. I have the table created manually nut what's going on with this: "Package retrieve error: The null value from property 'Published' cannot be assigned to a type 'System.DateTime'"?

Hello I'm using mercurial to work with the last source and i have exactly the same problem ...

Is Manually creating the table is a solution for me ? (it work  ....)

Why this table havent been created automatically ?


will i have some other missing table (or incorrect table design) ?

It's because up until very recently the BaseUrl setting was added to SiteSettingsPartRecord.

This was producing an upgrade error. So they changed it so a new table was created to hold the BaseUrl setting. But this was still in the same-numbered Update migration so if you already had the old BaseUrl setting you won't get the new update.

You could try fixing this by going to the "Orchard_Framework_DataMigrationRecord" table, find the entry for "Orchard.Core.Settings.Migrations", and subtract 1 from the Version number. This *should* cause the migration to be runnable again.

Let me know if it works.

As far as I'm aware, no - but I'm in the same situation, I just haven't attempted the upgrade quite yet! (Will be doing soon, it's just I have 2 live sites and several dev instances; it'll be a bit of work, I have a fun afternoon ahead...)
