How to handle migrations in Django project in production (App Platform) ?

I have been using the app platform for almost 2 months. Yesterday, I made some changes in database tables (models) in my Django projects. I pushed those changes to Github and my app successfully redeployed. But When I open the site, I got “ProgrammingError” that some field that I created new in the existing table does not exist. So, I opened the console in App Platform and applied migrations but nothing is changed. I am still facing the error.

*Exception Type: ProgrammingError
Exception Value:

column productssubcategory.description does not exist
LINE 1: …subcategory".“id”, “products
subcategory”.“name”, “products_… *

Can anyone help me with this?

  • Hi There!

    That error looks like the migrations may not have completed since the database changes. What migration commands did you run after making those changes?
