Trouble upgrading from 6.10.5 to 7.0.2

I am having trouble upgrading Cascade. I have followed the directions on your site and have tried the upgrade process a few times. I am trying to upgrade via the ROOT.war upgrade path.

I notice in the cascade.log file there is an exception stating "Cannot resolve reference to bean 'serviceProvider' while setting bean property 'serviceProvider'". There are a few more exceptions similar to this; one referencing the daoProvider, another referencing userDAO, and another referencing newMenuCache. Towards the end of the log file there are TONS of errors that say "ERROR [MemoryQueueSearchJobScheduler] An error occured while consuming from the lucene event queue: java.lang.NullPointerException. In the catalina.out file, there are lots of null pointer exceptions thrown that complain about errors occuring when converting dates.

I am running MySQL 5.0.96 on a 32-bit install of Fedora 15 (Lovelock). I am able to get Cascade 7 up and running fine when creating a new database from scratch and using your "cascade.sql" download to set up the appropriate tables. I only seem to run into an issue when working with a copy of our production database.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

    The recommended upgrade to 7.0.x is to perform the full installation. This may explain why using the example database works and your existing database does not.

    Per the instructions I linked to above, please remember to apply any customizations prior to running the installation (e.g. context.xml and web.xml).

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Thanks. I gave that a try but it didn't seem to work. I got the same exceptions in the same log files as before.

    Would you be able to attach your latest cascade.log and catalina.out files so we can look into these errors a bit more?

    I believe there may be an issue with the collation of the database based on the following error in your log:

    Caused By: Can't create table './cascade2/#sql-4c7_1a.frm' (errno: 150)

    Please follow this article for steps on correcting the collation of your database.

    Let me know if this helps.
