I have developed an ocportal website on a local MAMP web server.  

I have uploaded it to my live website and it all appears fine.  However,  when I try to edit commode pages using the 'edit this page' link I get this error:

Unfortunately a query has failed [SELECT * FROM btj_award_types WHERE (a_content_type='comcode_page') ] [Table 'alceste1_ocportal6c7.btj_award_types' doesn't exist] (version: 9.0.20, PHP version: 5.2.17, URL: /ocportal/cms/index.php?page=cms_comcode_pages&type=_ed&page_link=%3Astart&

Any suggestions?

MySQL version is 5.5.42-37.1

Suggests a table was missed when importing the SQL.


Suggests you uploaded all the files from a stock install to the live site (or otherwise installed separately), while on the dev site you had uninstalled certain addons such as awards.
If you uninstall addons it removes files and tables, so you can't then have those files come back without the tables also coming back.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
