Beta Database Issues

I recently downloaded your beta and I am getting database migration issue errorthat I was told could possibly be resolved with a restart of the app. Unfortunately I’ve tried several times and continue to get the error. I would like to send logs but don’t have that option in the menu. If you could let me know another way of accessing them I can try to find them using Terminal. Thank you for taking a look.

    Hi Nate,

    it looks to me like you tried this before with beaTunes 5.0.6 and it failed as well. Somehow you apparently have a corrupt beaTunes database that cannot be fixed.

    To solve this, please rename the folder /Users/wsrproductions/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/Database/ to something like /Users/wsrproductions/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/BrokenDatabase/ and then try starting beaTunes again.

    Note that macOS hides certain folder from you and you won't find them with Finder. To navigate to /Users/wsrproductions/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/ please use the Finder menu item Go -> Go to Folder.. and enter /Users/wsrproductions/Library/Application Support/beaTunes/

    Hope this helps,
