Blog admin getting Server Error 500 – perch2_blogs table disappeared?

Hi,

Can't access perch blog admin area anymore. I've seen this thread http://forum.grabaperch.com/forum/12-11-2015-perch-blog-not-loading-and-getting-server-error-500 which resolves itself by adding the table perch2_blogs back into the db. I'm working locally and it seems the perch2_blogs table doesn't exist. Not being familiar with how to do such things (having tried without success) I'm not sure what I need to do.

php_error.log

Looks like I'm missing that all important perch2_blogs table but don't know how it disappeared, or how to get it back without re-installing everything and losing all the content, although if it comes to it, happy to go down that route.

Was this a fresh install of Blog? When did the error start?

No it wasn't a fresh install of blog. It was all working fine. I'm not entirely sure when the issue started happening.

It may have occurred when I updated perch to the latest version when having issues logging in and it not recognising my license key. As far as I'm aware it worked before that, and that is the most recent change that would have affected perch. I updated a couple of weeks ago (doing the project in my spare time) and coming back to it this last week noticed the issue with the blog admin.

Do you have any data in the Blog app?

Just three test posts with associated meta (which all display fine on the front end).

I would be tempted to drop the blog tables and let the app reinstall itself.

I'm tempted to do the same :) I'll return with the results either way…

Bingo. Tables deleted, navigated to Apps > Blog and all is restored (minus the data).
