[Issue] 2.4.7 Update Issue, Database Error

Hello,

I dislike using the word urgent in relation to a game! Therefore, urgent only means I can't run the update at my sites until resolved. :D

I am receiving the following error when I try to run the actual update files segment from my site. I am using the "Blank" genre so think it might have something to do with that from what I am reading. Unfortunately, I am not experienced with sorting database errors so need some help.

The error is...

Code: Select all
A Database Error Occurred
Error Number: 1060

Duplicate column name 'rankcat_genre'

ALTER TABLE `nova_catalogue_ranks` ADD `rankcat_genre` VARCHAR(10) DEFAULT 'blk' NOT NULL

Filename: /home/mayvnimx/public_html/nova/modules/assets/update/update_101.php

Line Number: 135


Thank you for your time and assistance.

Update: I continued researching here and on my site. When I went back to my site, instead of the database error reported above, I had the Version 0.0.0 error. I found the post where the 0.0.0 error was reported and a fix was given.

I have followed those instructions and my site is functional and seems to be running the new version with no further problems.

More Info,

Talking about a totally random issue! I updated my second Nova site which is identical to the one that had the database issue update from the original message. The only differences are the site's name/URL and color of the skin being used! :D

Did not get the issue on the second update.

So, this topic can be closed or deleted. Both my sites and the test site are operational and running without problems.
