The script you downloaded was written for 0.21+. You are running 0.20  
or 0.20-fixes.
I don't know if it was written before .20 so it might not be an option

Any automated solution will adjust your database for you. That's how  
it's automated and it's why I said the best answer is to manually go

Watch Recordings screen.
