Invalid backend model specified: catalog/attribute_backend_customlayoutupdate

Posted on February 24, 2011 · Posted in Magento Bug Fixes

So you started using Magento 1.5 now. You can’t expect Magento to work without any headache for sure. Same happened today.

We started getting an issue which was killing the whole website and the website didn’t come at all. It was giving an error called,

” Invalid backend model specified: catalog/attribute_backend_customlayoutupdate “

So, here is how to fix this,

1. Goto your phpmyadmin. Lets say, your database name is “qubesys” .

2. Run this SQL command on your database’s SQL tab,

SELECT *
FROM `qubesys`.`eav_attribute`
WHERE (
`attribute_id` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `entity_type_id` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `attribute_code` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `attribute_model` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `backend_model` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `backend_type` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `backend_table` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `frontend_model` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `frontend_input` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `frontend_label` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `frontend_class` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `source_model` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `is_required` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `is_user_defined` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `default_value` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `is_unique` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
OR `note` LIKE '%stomlayoutupdate%'
)

NOTE : MAKE SURE, YOU REPLACE THE DATABASE NAME IN THE FIRST LINE OF THE COMMAND.

3.  After you run the above command, it will show few records in the next page. Just select all that records and click DELETE.

4. Once those records are deleted, just try your site frontend now. Your site should be coming now .
