Error 500 Unknown column 'a.note' in 'field list'

joomlaI don't know how this error came about, but the symptom became apparent when I tried to edit an article and found that I couldn't. This article describes the fix.

Database management

Start by logging on to the backend of Joomla.

  1. Go to Extensions > Manage > Database.
  2. Here you will see a list of errors on the database.
  3. Click the Fix button top-left.

Your database should now be fixed, and you'll be able to access the articles for editing.
