WPML 3.8 includes major updates to the String Translation tables. As part of this, we rely on indexes that were supposed to be there already.

We learned that in some sites, these indexes are missing and cannot be created automatically because of data conflicts. We know how to fix this, but it's something that needs to be done with a lot of care.

If you got this message, please add a comment here. We'll contact you, get a backup of your site, test the migration logic and make sure that it's working for you.

Hello @julienf-5 and thank you for contacting us.
In order to confirm and give you steps on how to fix the problem, and that there are no other issues with your database, we would need a database dump or export with the plugin "Duplicator" of your site.
I am enabling a private reply for your next reply so that you can share that information with us securely and privately.

Hi there,
I do have the same problem. Won't be able to use Duplicator as it's not compatible with my page builder.
But I can make a manual DB and files backup if that's OK.

How may I proceed?

Hello @pabloq
Manual database export (dump) is also just fine.
I am activating the private reply for your next post. You can upload it to a dropbox, google drive, private hosting or whenever you want and just share the link to the dump.

@david and @rondap - if you have that message, it is required for us to check your site in order to verify the problem and if there is also other problems too.
For this, I would need a database export or a site dump created by the Duplicator plugin.

If you find this hard - you can just give me access to your site and FTP and I will do it.

When I get that - I will verify the problem and I can then fix it on your site, so credentials are also welcome.

I am activating the private reply for your next reply so that you can share the information privately and securely.

@leopoldr Hello Leopold.
As I mentioned to the other people here, we need to verify the problem.
So, I am activating the private reply, where you can share credentials, Duplicator package link or database dump.
