Database schema migration failure (Icinga Web v2.12.1)

After updating Icinga 2 and Icinga Web 2, my web interface shows there are 2 pending migrations: 2.12.0.sql and 2.11.0.sql.

Applying these migrations via the web interface fails.

The schema migrations also fail when I attempt to run them manually.

Running mysql -u root -p icingaweb2 </usr/share/icingaweb2/schema/mysql-upgrades/2.11.0.sql
results in ERROR 1071 (42000) at line 14: Specified key was too long; max key length is 767 bytes

Likewise, for the other schema, running mysql -u root -p icingaweb2 </usr/share/icingaweb2/schema/mysql-upgrades/2.12.0.sql results in ERROR 1146 (42S02) at line 1: Table ‘icingaweb2.icingaweb_schema’ doesn’t exist

Has anyone experienced a similar issue and been able to resolve it?


  • Icinga Web 2 version: 2.12.1
  • Used modules and their versions (System - About): director (master), monitoring (2.12.1)
  • Web browser used: Chrome
  • Icinga 2 version used (icinga2 --version): 2.14.0
  • PHP version used (php --version): 7.3.33
  • Server operating system and version: Cent OS 7

This already popped up here.

Though, the upgrade file for 2.11 includes a fix for this in the first five lines. So, it shouldn’t happen anymore. :roll_eyes:

Thank you! This worked perfectly!
