We previously were able to run the following SQL query to generate a table that contained all of our events, but events added recently are no longer showing… Seems to be something related to the join on the wp_esp_event_venue table… Did the schema change recently?


wp_posts.post_title as Subject,
CONVERT(CONVERT_TZ(wp_esp_datetime.DTT_EVT_start,'Etc/UTC','America/Los_Angeles'), DATE) as StartDate,
CONVERT(CONVERT_TZ(wp_esp_datetime.DTT_EVT_start,'Etc/UTC','America/Los_Angeles'), TIME) as StartTime,
#wp_esp_datetime.DTT_EVT_start as Start,
CONVERT(CONVERT_TZ(wp_esp_datetime.DTT_EVT_end,'Etc/UTC','America/Los_Angeles'), DATE) as StopDate,
CONVERT(CONVERT_TZ(wp_esp_datetime.DTT_EVT_end,'Etc/UTC','America/Los_Angeles'), TIME) as StopTime,
#wp_esp_datetime.DTT_EVT_end as Stop,
CONCAT_WS(' ', wp_esp_venue_meta.VNU_address, wp_esp_venue_meta.VNU_city, 'CA', wp_esp_venue_meta.VNU_zip) as Location,
'FALSE' as AllDayEvent
FROM wp_posts
INNER JOIN wp_esp_datetime
ON wp_posts.ID = wp_esp_datetime.EVT_id
INNER JOIN wp_esp_event_meta
ON wp_posts.ID = wp_esp_event_meta.EVT_id
INNER JOIN wp_esp_event_venue
ON wp_posts.ID = wp_esp_event_venue.EVT_id
INNER JOIN wp_esp_venue_meta
ON wp_esp_event_venue.VNU_ID = wp_esp_venue_meta.VNU_ID

Sorry for the delay, We have new update 5.0.19 is now available, do you experience any problem using that version?

I updated to latest version and the issue persists.

Let me know if there’s anything else I can provide to assist with troubleshooting.

Thank you!

Hi Eric,

Yes, the schema changed in version 5.0.0+

esp_event_venue is no longer used to save the Event Venue relations, they all save within esp_event_meta now. We have a migration script which copies the ‘old’ values from esp_event_venue over for existing events, see:


New events store the relationship directly within esp_event_meta.

Thanks! That relationship update fixed my issue.

Now, how do I run the EE_DMS_5_0_0_Event_Venues.dmsstage.php ? I tried calling it from bash using php \event-espresso-core\core\data_migration_scripts\5_0_0_stages\EE_DMS_5_0_0_Event_Venues.dmsstage.php but it says I’m missing a dependency…?

Thank you again!

Did it not run when you initially updated event espresso?

Or have you altered the version numbers on your install? (Ask as your running your own custom queries so something I’ve seen previously is people patching their own version numbers, which will affect migrations)
