  • @razbakov resource instance is not available means what in this case? – Nagendra Nov 10 '15 at 4:55

So have you written any instances to your database?

Then load a specific instance (suite) and view its data:

/** @var Bespoke_Suites_Model_Suites $suite */
$suite = Mage::getModel('bespoke_suites/suites');
// Load suite with suites_id = 1

If you have not yet created any suites, you may do so with:

/** @var Bespoke_Suites_Model_Suites $suite */
$suite = Mage::getModel('bespoke_suites/suites');

// Set whatever fields you have in your table
// equivalent:
$suite->setData('name', 'foo');

// Save it
// Should now have a suites_id set automatically

  • when i try your first code snippet,return in report file a:5:{i:0;s:34:"Resource instance is not available";i:1;s:834:"#0 – Nagendra Nov 9 '15 at 13:54
  • second part of your code returns Fatal error: Call to a member function beginTransaction() – Nagendra Nov 9 '15 at 13:55
  • Records are there in my table – Nagendra Nov 9 '15 at 14:00

Please add your model file code, also a bit more information on what your trying to achieve. What are you dumping, and what are you expecting to see?
