All The Tropes - database locked with no explanation
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Trying to edit pages on All The Tropes, but I'm getting the following message. There is no sitemessage explaining why.

Warning: The database has been locked for maintenance, so you will not be able to publish your edits right now. You may wish to copy and paste your text into a text file and save it for later.

The system administrator who locked it offered this explanation: The primary database server is running in read-only mode.

This is fixed. This was due to mysql being restarted because of a OOM and the read_only mode forgotten to be set to 0 after start up.
