Unable to update datatbase schema 17

Postby Flashback » Wed Aug 02, 2017 1:53 pm

Hi, I've used Mixxx for a few years and have enjoyed doing so but after downloading version 2.0 I appear to be locked out of both versions.
After downloading and installing version 2.0 when I tried to launch it, I received a pop up telling me my "mixxxdb.sqlite.file may be corrupt" and advised to "Try renaming it and restarting Mixxx" which is fine but where do I find this corrupt file? The annoying thing is that I can't even use Version 1.10.1 any longer either. So any help, advice on where to find this corrupt file would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading this.

First, try installing Mixxx 1.11, running that, then upgrading to 2.0. You can get old versions of Mixxx from downloads.mixxx.org.

The database file is in the same folder as the mixxx.log file.

I tried your suggestion but it hasn't worked. :( Anyone with other solutions or ideas will be very welcome to share them.

Normally the latest Mixxx version should be able to upgrade from any database version. So your case looks like the database is really corrupt somehow.

Are there more detailed infos in the mixxx.log what is broken?
Maybe it is possible to fix it using a third party sqlite recovery tool.
