"500 internal Server error" when moving PM to new topic

(Andrew Waugh) #1

I compose my user guides as PMs from my non priviledged account. I send them to my moderator account, and I invite other users to proofread, check for clarity etc. Once I’m done I take the PM and move just that post to the “User Guides” category.

So far it has worked well (largely thanks to the way that edits work in Discourse).

Today I get a “500 internal Server error” when I try to move the post.

The log shows:

Message (6 copies reported)
NoMethodError (undefined method update_column' for nil:NilClass) /var/www/discourse/app/models/post_mover.rb:95:increate_first_post’

v1.7.0.beta8 +20


I was able to move the post to a different (public) topic, then once it was there, move it to the topic I was originally trying to move it to.

Can a category be locked temporarily?

Can we repro this error @techAPJ?

I am unable to repro this issue when moving a post from PM to new/existing topic.


If you can still repro this issue PM me temporary Admin credentials, I will have a look at it.
