Description dake 2005-10-04 20:41:46 UTC
Can't delete some articles, for example 

The database seems to be locked. Someone told me it already happened before.
Note that our "Articles for deletion" page is also locked, saving is impossible
and is extremely annoying. See,

Error : 

Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.
Erreur de syntaxe dans la base de données. La dernière requête traitée par la
base de données était :

    (SQL query hidden)

depuis la fonction « Title::touchArray ». MySQL a renvoyé l'erreur « 1205: Lock
wait timeout exceeded; Try restarting transaction ( ».

This is a transient error, run it again.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-10-04 21:56:26 UTC
Apparently this is continuous; some kind of stuck lock on the page entry. Got one of 
our MySQL guys helping look into this now...

This incident was resolved weeks ago. :D
