Description (last modified by Christian Boos)

System Information:

  • Trac 0.12
  • Windows XP 64bits SP2 (should be reproduceable on any version of Windows)

How To Reproduce:

Assuming your Trac env use a large (>1Gb) SQLite database, when you use "trac-admin hotcopy ENV" (while Trac is running), the copy of the database fails at 1Gb.

Why : On Windows, when a SQLite DB is locked (eg, during a transaction), database file has an exclusive lock between 1Gb and 1Gb + 512bytes (see http://www.mail-archive.com/sqlite-users@sqlite.org/msg08077.html), so hotcopy fails to read it.

Proposition : When SQLite backend is used, skip the database file during the hotcopy process and use something like "sqlite3 trac.db .backup trac.db.bak" instead.

Perhaps we should use the (PySqlite Backup feature), once it's finished.
