I'm trying to update my custom module's database table.

An so far i have done this.

Created mysql4-upgrade-0.1.0-0.1.1 - With the following code

$installer = $this;
$connection = $installer->getConnection();
//do this for each column you want to add
$connection->addColumn($installer->getTable('emailorder'), 'number_of_entries', array(
        'type'      => Varien_Db_Ddl_Table::TYPE_INTEGER,
        'nullable' => false,
        'comment'   => 'Number Of Entries',

Ive change the vertionsnumber in the module config.xml and in the etc/module folder

Still it doesn't update my database table. What to do?

  • What's the value corresponding to your module in core_resource table ? – Raphael at Digital Pianism Feb 15 '16 at 11:33
  • The Veriation number? Or what? – Patrick Knudsen Feb 15 '16 at 11:35
  • Both version and data_version values ? – Raphael at Digital Pianism Feb 15 '16 at 11:36
  • Not sure what you mean, but its 0.1.1 – Patrick Knudsen Feb 15 '16 at 11:37
  • 1
    That means your script ran fine the first time you tried, please update your upgrade script to the one Amit posted and change both data_version and version to 0.1.1 for your module entry under the core_resource table. That will force the upgrade script to run again – Raphael at Digital Pianism Feb 15 '16 at 11:39

$installer->getTable('emailorder') is wrong.

It format is should be


Or instead of $installer->getTable('emailorder') use the table name

  • I have tried this with no result :( $installer->getTable('puk/emailorder'), and ive tried to replace it alle with the tablename. – Patrick Knudsen Feb 15 '16 at 11:06
  • $installer->getConnection() ->addColumn('YOUR_TABLENAME', 'number_of_entries', array( 'type' =>Varien_Db_Ddl_Table::TYPE_INTEGER, 'length' => 10, 'nullable' => true, 'default' => null, 'comment' => 'No of Entitie' )); – Amit Bera Feb 15 '16 at 11:15
  • try above. check and that – Amit Bera Feb 15 '16 at 11:15
  • No good. Can it be something else than the sql code? – Patrick Knudsen Feb 15 '16 at 11:26
