Problems after a RT1->RT2 install

So I finally went thru and updated our RT1 install to RT2 (pgsql), and
while the conversion seems to have went well, I can’t seem to add a
new ticket to the converted database either via web or email. What’s more
unnerving is that I have a wholly seperate RT2 install on this same server,
that’s has had no problems whatsoever. It’s 3am and I am at my wits end at
this point…

Here is the output from rt-mailgate:

Any ideas on what this might be?; I followed the conversion instructions to
the letter (perhaps I need to run the ‘SELECT setval(‘tickets_id_seq’,
(select max(id) from tickets));’ command in psql again after running the
conversion script?), and I wish I knew what was throwing up those
"Permission Denied" errors.

Thanks in advance - Peter

In reference to my earlier problem w/ my converted RT1->RT2 db, here is
what Apache’s error log says. (note that it’s still looking for the RT1
webrt.cgi?)

RT::Ticket=HASH(0x8f4ba1c) ->Create couldn’t set EffectiveId: No value sent

Any pointers on a fix or how to debug this further?

That’s what did it… I followed the instructions too closely and ran that
sql statement before running the conversion script which is useless because
it updates null. :slight_smile: Perhaps that instruction should be moved one line
down after the conversion script. :slight_smile:
