Unable to hotcopy SQLite database on Windows if >1Gb — at Initial Version

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.
