Database out of date error

After downloading both the current releases of Providence and Pawtucket, I still get this when trying to use the Pawtucket website:

An error in your system configuration has been detected

General installation instructions can be found here. For more specific hints on the existing issues please have a look at the messages below.

Your database is out-of-date. Please install all schema migrations starting with migration #159. See for migration instructions.

I saw the instructions on the page saying this error results from incompatible versions of the two script sets, so I replaced all the files with the latest release. Anyone know what I am missing?

Many thanks,



  • It sounds like you're running the develop branch code? Version 1.7.9 Providence and Pawtucket require migration 158.

  • Sadly, I don't know what that means. I downloaded the one zip file available and extracted the files. I didn't know there were distinctions between versions of 1.7.9. This is my first venture into open source.

    There aren't distinctions. But the release versions you downloaded should not be asking for migrations past 158. Only the develop branch code (not a release) wants 159 and beyond. Which files did you download?
