Tech:Database lock timeout
Requesting certain files on shared such as File:US-26.png results in the following error message after approximately ten minutes:
Database error A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in the software. The last attempted database query was: (SQL query hidden) from within function "LocalFile::upgradeRow". Database returned error "1205: Lock wait timeout exceeded; try restarting transaction (wikitraveldb1-new)".
This problem previously existed with File:Brussels_Map.png, but that file worked when I tried accessing it just now.
When it happens
Click on File:US-26.png and you should be able to generate the referenced error. Other files that may demonstrate this error:
