[EP-tech] database conversion error, while upgrading 3.1.0 -> 3.3.10

Hi everyone,


I am performing an upgrade to a copy of our ePrints repository, which is currently 3.1.0 and has had quite a bit added to the datasets over the years, to iron out the process and check for problems…


I found one.. Details below..  Any ideas on where to start looking would be appreciated.


Also, can I re-run the epadmin upgrade process from the state it’s in now (1/2 completed) , or do I need to refresh the machine and do it all from scratch..








Using the tarball, for 3.3.10,

·         ./configure worked fine,

·         ./install worked fine (created lots of backup files as it went, but that was expected.)

·         Jumped into mysql to empty out some __rindex tables (as documented on http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Upgrading_from_3.1)

·         bin/epadmin upgrade <repoid>


Upgrading 3.1.2 to 3.2.0

There are recommended configuration file updates:



Install updated configuration files? [yes/no] ? yes

Renaming /opt/eprints3/archives/<repoid>/cfg/cfg.d/indexing.pl to indexing.pl.old

Added dataset saved_search
Fixed saved_search__rindex.field collation
Added dataset document
Added placement to dataset document
