The root cause of your error appears to be that the code expects a database table column that is not actually in your database. Did you update your code (either core or contrib modules) recently? You may need to invoke update.php.

Try pointing your browser at [your site]/update.php and see if any updates need to be performed.

If that is not the problem, is there anything in your status report? (Navigate to Reports -> Status Report or point your browser at /admin/reports/status).

  • Thanx. That solved the problem, but I am confused. The particular site was one of several on a multisite system. It was the only one with the problem. Unexpected.

On a typical multisite system, each individual site has its own database. Did you update the others and forget to update this one?

Or, if you haven’t updated the others, perhaps you just didn’t trigger the issue on any of the other sites yet. Regardless, go update them now if you haven’t!

  • I used Drush to update the whole multisite.
    I will update them all just in case. Thanx for the advice.
