Unknown db on login
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I attempted to launch Void-bot (which checks a config page on metawiki before connecting to IRC) and received an ambiguous error that the script could not login as Void-bot. I therefore opened a new browser and attempted a manual login and received the specific error (Cannot access the database: Cannot access the database: Unknown database '0' ( @John mentioned on IRC that 0 is impossible for a db name. When I view any page later, it treats it as though the login was successful. I do not recieve this error when logging into my main Void account.

Void created this object in space S1 Public.

Hmm, strange. We should wait for further user reports. Confuses me as '0' definitely doesn't exist even if impossible, there's no reason for the database 0 to be called.

Well, as a temporary solution, I could create a new account and attempt to use that in the meantime. I'll see if I can figure out anything else about it.

I also experienced this issue when attempting to login as Void-test. I do not encounter it with the new account.

I can now confirm this error when trying to also sign in with my alt account, but I did get signed in anyway.

This just propagated to the account Void-bot2

Actually, it currently affects all the alternate accounts I have.

Well there is definitely no database called '0' on db2, or an entry in cw_wikis like that, so I don't know why this database is being called upon login.

Will be resolved in 1.30, when the extension is re-enabled after the fix.
