Changes in WebPush may require removing the DB

(Fernando Jiménez Moreno) #1

Hello folks,

yesterday, Andrew landed a patch to update the WebPush implementation against the newest standard (thank you, Andrew!). This patch included a change in the WebPush DB that might cause the following error:

thread '<unnamed>' panicked at 'calledResult::unwrap()on anErrvalue: SqliteFailure(Error { code: Unknown, extended_code: 1 }, Some("table subscriptions has 3 columns but 4 values were supplied"))', ../src/libcore/

To fix this, you just need to remove the WebPush DB from your profile folder (most likely located at ~/.local/shared/foxbox).

You won’t see this error if you had no previous WebPush DB.

That completely blind sided me. Mainly because I am constantly deleting the database file just as quick way to clear out my subscriptions. Thanks for pointing this out!

We don’t have to deal cleanly with db upgrades yet, but this is something to keep in mind before we hit a real release.
