I was using a 0.9 version of review board and installed it according
to the instructions on GettingStarted. I downloaded the code using
the "nightlies" repository. I want to preserve my old database of
reviews so I copied (using cp) the reviewboard.sqlite file onto the
freshly installed reviewboard.db.
I then ran rb-site --upgrade /var/www/site and output:
m...@debian:/var/www/site$ sudo rb-site upgrade /var/www/site/

Installed 6 object(s) from 1 fixture(s)
No evolution required.
Now when I site the site it works, but if I hit anything related to
reviews I get (after settings debug to True in settings_local.py):
OperationalError at /r/new/
no such column: scmtools_repository.encoding
I open reviewboard.db with sqlitebrowser I clearly see that the
encoding column does not exist. When I view sqlitebrowser on the
fresh install I see that encoding column does exist.
There was a prior post suggesting that the user did not have django-
evolution installed properly and I have tried reinstalling that which
seemed to go right.
Some how the column is not being migrated when I copy the old db over
the new one. Suggestions? Thanks.
