MySQL Query Failed: Incorrect datetime value: '' for column 'date_available' at row 1

Hi there ,

I'm trying to restore my backup data file into a new hosting online and have downloaded the newest version of OpenCATS. However, i'm getting the above error. I'm not tech savvy but can understand certain concepts. To my understanding, the old data is different or has a column that the new version doesnt have, or the format of the date is wrong? is that a way to fix massive amount of data somewhere so it is compatible with the newer version?

Can someone help me with this?

I'm not sure what steps you've followed - or if you're still on a supportable level of PHP & MySQL.. But I'd install to the same version as you're currently running, to prove it all works, then upgrade to current.

I fixed the test data so that it's compliant with strict mode and also added in some missing features introduced since the test data was created (candidate tags).

it's a single file, it's added to the development branch right now.
