I have created a 'staging' version of my site on a new server.

When I am in the admin area I can see the list of weblog entries just fine, but when I click on one of them to edit it, I receive this error:

You have tried to access a weblog that does not exist."

Is this a config or permissions problem? What should I do to fix the issue?


It maybe worth checking to see if you’ve got the same number of exp_weblog_titles and exp_weblog_data rows.

You can do this by going to Admin > Utilities > SQL Manager > Database Query Form

select count(*) as cnt from exp_weblog_titles
select count(*) as cnt from exp_weblog_data

Enter these one at a time inside your form. Make sure the numbers match.

  • They are different. select count() as cnt from exp_weblog_data returned 1576. select count() as cnt from exp_weblog_titles returned 1706. So does that mean I should recopy the database? Mar 14 '13 at 3:28
  • I've re-imported the database and am now getting the same count and everything is working. Thank you. Mar 14 '13 at 5:58
