--- Comment #12 from Kusi <kusi at forum.titlis.org> ---
I've added my dbconfig.xml with which I was successful. In addition to the
modified dbconfig.xml, the following changes to the db were needed

- Since I have many Umlaute, accents etc in my db, I first had to fix the
encoding. You have the utf encoding in your dbconfig.xml, but for unknown
reasons I had to do that explicitly first before running DK. I assume it comes
with the ENGINE change.

  ALTER TABLE digikamdb.Albums 

  ALTER TABLE digikamdb.Images 

- During creation of the Albums_AlbumRoots constraint, you limit the column
"relativePath" to 255 chars, but that didn't do the trick (neither did it for
other users on digikam-user mailing list, as you remember). I don't know why
(again I assume its because of the ENGINE change to InnoDB), though. I had to
change the datatype from LONGTEXT to VARCHAR(255) in the ALTER command of the
v7 to v8 upgrade statement

For me, the issue is resolved, but I don't think the solution to my issues is
applicable for everybody. If needed, you can have my db to experiment (in an
anonymized form), let me know.

Am I the only one with plenty of FK constraint violations? If needed by
someone, I have a (risky) script which resolves them.
