Description Brion Vibber 2007-09-14 21:16:40 UTC
As reported on my userpage; need to test this.
Comment 1 Prodego 2007-10-16 02:11:39 UTC
Testing this on (which is rather unstable, but I don't have a local wiki handy), I found that I could actually *successfully* undelete a page during a database lock (it was locked using Special:Lockdb in this case, but I assume anything short of setting the database to read only will have this problem). I would also assume that this is the reason it failed on the Wikipedia server, the server itself was locked. If someone would care to confirm this on a vanilla instillation. 
Comment 2 Roan Kattouw 2007-10-16 08:12:46 UTC
AFAIK, locking the database by setting $wgReadOnly does yield an error message.
Comment 3 Daniel Cannon (AmiDaniel) 2007-10-16 08:42:29 UTC
Confirmed on vanilla install. If the db is locked, when you access Special:Undelete, you will not get the Undelete button. But if the db is locked while undeleting a page, it will succeed.
Comment 4 Daniel Cannon (AmiDaniel) 2007-10-16 09:24:42 UTC
Committed fix in r26768.
