#1614 closed bug (wontfix)

Database table geonames_cache inconsistent

Reported by: planetcruiser Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: unassigned
Component: BW Geo Keywords:



  • We have places in geonames_cache that have a parentCountryId=0, although a fk_countrycode is set
  • This leads to unexpected behaviour during sign-up and possibly in member search


  1. Add missing parentCountryId values via SQL query
  2. Fix geonames import script


  • Find broken locations via:
    SELECT * 
    FROM geonames_cache
    WHERE parentCountryId = 0
    AND fcode NOT LIKE  "PC%"
  • Make sure manual fixes of geonames_cache are not overwritten by geonames import script
  • Compare geonames_cache with geonames_countries
  • Priority is low, because this only hits very few members

The site is being migrated to a full copy of geonames in the next few months. Therefore closing as it will not matter anymore.
