Alpha 2.2.3 -> empty channel folders

Hi,

Just installed the alphas in the correct order with the result that the channel folders are empty. Did a archivemaintence and channelmaintenance does show the channels, but not in Awasu itself anymore. How can I make them showing again?

PS. The error log says:
An error occurred while loading the channels.
- no such column: metadata (rc=1).

It sounds like you didn't install one of the previous versions correctly.

It's not enough to just unpack the ZIP's, there are sometimes other things that need to be done (in particular, running ArchiveMaintenance.exe). It's a good idea to run Awasu after installing each version to make sure everything's OK.

You should go back to your saved backup and start again. You did back everything up first, right...? :-) Otherwise, delete your user's ARCHIVE.DB file and that will *probably* be enough. You'll lose your archived content but your channels and settings will be left intact.

Did that, but not between alpha 1 en alpha2

That did indeed the job. Lost a few titles, but anything is better than losing it all. Thanks for the quick response
