Well, since you didn't supply the exact error message, this is just a
guess; but it sounds like you haven't got the contrib/tablefunc module
installed in your 8.1 database, or at least haven't got it installed
correctly.  You need a file that is compiled for 8.1
(copying the 8.3 version will almost certainly NOT work).
