# Revision history [back]

This is because of the newer version of postgres, I will try to find a fix for this today.

Right now you can do the following: take a look into file askbot/search/postgresql/thread_and_post_models_01162012.plsql, Find all instances of CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION and right before that line add: DROP FUNCTION <funcname> IF EXISTS; then rerun the migrations.

Please let me know if it helps. I will today test the same on postgres 8.3.

What OS distribution are you using?

With postgresql migrations run inside transactions, and if one fails - nothing bad happens, you are just stuck at a previous migration. In some other databases, where transactions are not supported, a broken migration can leave the database in an inconsistent state, so postgres is a good choice.

Please let me know if it helps. I will today test the same on postgres 8.3.
