How to Reproduce

We are getting InterfaceError: (0, ) on various pages occasionally, mostly after Trac's been idle for some time. Usually happens in the morning, and after refresh or two the error goes away.

We are running latest Trac with mod_wsgi on Apache. Here is apache info:

Server version: Apache/2.2.3 Server built: Aug 16 2006 00:15:34 Server's Module Magic Number: 20051115:3 Server loaded: APR 1.2.7, APR-Util 1.2.7 Compiled using: APR 1.2.7, APR-Util 1.2.7 Architecture: 32-bit Server MPM: Prefork

Server compiled with….


mod_wsgi 1.1

GET operation on /wiki, Trac issued an internal error.

Keywords: mysql needinfo added; mod_wsgi apache removed

Related to the reconnect issue discussed in #5783?

Can you please test the patch in that ticket?

comment:2 by Christian Boos, 14 years ago

Milestone: 0.10.5

Also, you should try to see if this sill happens with newer mod_wsgi releases.

I can confirm this problem, stil present in the current release (0.11.1).

Tracing back our changes on the server of the last few weeks, we realized that we have this error intermittendly after we've converted the database and tables from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8.

As test, we're restored a backup from before the conversion, and the problem was gone. So it's definately encoding related. Also, I don't think this is Trac related, but a problem in the MySQL c++ library or the MySQLdb wrapper.

Our environment:

Trac: 0.11.1
Python: 2.3.4 (#1, Feb 15 2005, 19:42:48) [GCC 3.4.3 20041212 (Red Hat 3.4.3-9.EL4)
setuptools: 0.6c3
MySQL: server: "4.1.22-log", client: "4.1.22", thread-safe: 0
MySQLdb: 1.2.1_p2
Genshi: 0.5.1
mod_python: < 3.2
Subversion: 1.4.3 (r23084)

jQuery: 1.2.6

Milestone: 1.0
Resolution: worksforme
Status: newclosed

Well, this error was related to a MySQL misconfiguration.

If someone has this problem again, please read carefully the MySqlDb page, which explains how a MySQL database can be configured in order to operate correctly for Trac.
