Database failure. Please refer to sugarcrm.log for details.

Ok, something bad has happened. I have a small account list and decided to change all the account names from LastName, First to First Last Name. I was able to change all of the account names. However, now all of the email addresses that were associated with the accounts are gone. Additionally, I can not modify any data. When I select Edit and add an email I get the Database failure message when I try to save.

This is affecting everything, not just Accounts.

I see this in my error log: MySQL error 1054: Unknown column ‘’ in ‘field list’

FWIW, when I look at the database I still see the original names (LastName, First) instead of the changed (first last name)

Any ideas other than Quick Repair and Rebuild?

Anything? I’m stuck with an uneditable CRM.

So, I created a new instance of suiteCRM and linked my original database. It appears to be working fine.

Should I be worried that I’m using a database from 7.3 on a new 7.5 install?
